background information regarding how the Open Space amendment came to be.
      The Planning Commission discussed the up coming hearing and the
Chair requested that the Commission be present Monday night to show their
support for the ordinance.

b.  Maximum Size of Accessory Structures
The Planning Commission discussed and reviewed information regarding
accessory structures and uses.
      There was consensus between members in defining "attached" as
buildings being within a certain distance from the principle structure,
i.e.: 6 - 10 feet.  It was agreed that attached should include at least a
common wall and some felt that it may include a continuous roof line.
      The Chair asked the Commission to consider a 75% maximum (of the
gross square footage of the principle building) for a detached accessory
structure and tabled discussion until the next meeting.

VI.  New Business
