  • Have scientific studies conducted on the identifies resources of concern in the area.
  • Prohibit certain potentially harmful activities within the PMA until the ordinance can be revised based on the studies.

  • Provide that Best Management Practices be applied through restrictive covenants to new development within or adjacent to the district.
  • Require new roads have wildlife passageways if constructed within the district but outside the PMA.
  • Provide that a recreation plan for the area be adopted by the Town in conjunction with other agencies, based on the result of scientific studies.
  • Allow for relief from the ordinance under certain circumstances.
