Village Council Hears from Consultant
The Pinehurst Village Council got its first report from a consultant hired to review its development ordinances during a work session Tuesday night.
Craig Lewis from The Lawrence Group gave an initial overview of the village’s development ordinances, including positives and negatives.
Among the areas of concern listed by the consultants were the village’s unnecessarily complex and rigid engineering standards, too much discretion vested with staff, failure of the local development community to deliver quality public infrastructure, the village’s lack of control of its utilities, the failure of the comprehensive plan and the village’s PDO to deal with non-single family development and the fact that development in the village is viewed by the public as entertainment.
The presentation was preliminary phase of the of the review process. Lewis told the council that the they would come back to the council with more information and analysis in 2-3 months.
