As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain the unique rural character of Lisbon while accommodating responsible growth, North Star Planning has prepared a comprehensive summary memo regarding the proposed changes to the Rural Open Space (ROS) zoning regulations. This memo focuses on the ROS-I and ROS-II zones, which play a crucial role in preserving Lisbon's farmland, forests, and open spaces.

The memo details the current regulations and the rationale behind considering updates. These updates aim to balance the need for preserving our valuable rural lands with the requirements of residential development, ensuring flexibility and fairness for landowners.

Key aspects of the proposal include options like Conservation/Open Space Subdivisions and Maximum Lot Size ordinances, each offering a different approach to manage land use while respecting Lisbon's rural identity.
