Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - November 18, 1963, Bennington, Vermont Ion Bennington Fanner monday november 18, 1963 hearing tuesday on Village zoning the first of three Public hearings to explain recommendations for a proposed zoning ordinance for the Village of Bennington will be held tuesday at 7 30 . In the Bennington county courthouse. The hearing has been called by the Village zoning commission. Bennington Village trustees will hold two additional hearings before adopting the ordinance and putting it to a vote at a Village meeting. According to present plans voters will be asked to approve the ordinance at Village meeting in March 1964. The proposed ordinance is expected to be a redrafted version of one that was presented to voters at two Public hearings last Spring. The ordinance was adopted in May by trustees and Only approval by taxpayers was required to enact it into Law. A court order issued May i by judge Dale w. Brooks of Stowe however forbade the Vil Lage to pass any Law that would interfere with the development of a trailer Park by Joseph d. Corcoran at the intersection of Morgan Street and Imperial Avenue. The proposed ordinance prohibited trailer Parks in the Village altogether and allowed single trailers in r-3 far Multi family dwellings districts Only. The injunction was lifted last month. Only approval by voters would have been required this fall to pass the ordinance if the general Assembly had not changed in the interim the statutory procedure for drafting and enacting municipal zoning ordinances. This Means that to comply with the new Law the commission has had to make certain changes in the provisions of the original ordinance and present it again to taxpayers. The Law also requires three Public hearings one held by the commission and two by trustees. Before the Law was amended each body was required to hold one hearing.
