Tonight: Woodside explores new regulations on basements

 

There are plans for large and unconventional basements being submitted in Woodside, and the potential effects are causing concern in Town Hall.

In the third in a series of Town Council study sessions, set for Tuesday, July 14, the council will consider recommendations to restrict the size and location of basements.

The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in Independence Hall at 2955 Woodside Road. See the agenda and the staff report.

If the council reaches consensus on new basement regulations at its July 14 meeting, the next stop would be review and comment by the Planning Commission.

The regulations would then go back to the council as a proposed ordinance for a public hearing. The council could introduce the ordinance at this time, then adopt it at a subsequent meeting. The regulations would become law 30 days later.
