There was discussion regarding an upcoming Planning and Zoning seminar on July 23, 2012 in Bakersfield. No one from the Board will attend.
Skip asked the Board about a request from Jason and Elizabeth Minor to serve dinner at the Inn at Grace Farm. The Board questioned if this was only for Bed and Breakfast guests or for outside guests. There was discussion regarding an existing State restaurant license, the differences between Town and State regulations and which apply, and what responsibilities the Town may or may not have for permits issued by the State. There was additional discussion regarding the number of parking spaces needed and the lack of a commercial kitchen. According to Fairfax Development Regulations, a restaurant is a separate use from a Bed and Breakfast, although both require Conditional Use and Site Plan Approval. The Board felt that this was a new use and recommended a new hearing. Discussion included whether a new hearing should be for a revision to the original approval or would require a hearing for a new use or a mixed-use PUD.
