NEW BUSINESS

       a.      Consider Changes to 4-18-2006 Draft LIMC Regional Comprehensive Plan

       Mr. Arnold explained that the LIMC Regional Comprehensive Plan has been discussed,
evaluated and analyzed for about 2 years in trying to consolidate uses throughout an eleven-
municipality area that includes and encircles Lancaster City. Item 33A -- Wabank extension to Wabank
Road; should be removed. Item 36A – Route 741/Charlotte Street intersections, to move Barbara
Street signal to Charlotte Street, provide new entrance to Oak Knoll; item to be removed.

       A Saylor/Weidinger motion that the Millersville Borough Planning Commission recommend
to the Millersville Borough Council consider requesting that the LIMC remove certain sections on
their Growing Together Plan specifically in table 8.1, item #33A and item #36A and modify the
accompanying map 8.6 accordingly passed unanimously.

       A Weidinger/Saylor motion that the Millersville Borough Planning Commission recommend
to the Millersville Borough Council that the LIMC Growing Together Plan be considered as an
amendment to the current Millersville Borough Comprehensive Plan and not as a replacement to
the current Millersville Borough Comprehensive plan passed unanimously.

       b.      Review Sketch Plan for 228 West Frederick Street

        Mr. Swiernik, David Miller/Associates, explained that Mr. Douglas is interested in adding an
accessory structure of his property. The structure will be for a 3-bay garage and shop area on the
second level (for personal use only) which is to exceed the maximum 1,000 sq. ft. accessory building
addition on the property and will need to apply to the Zoning Hearing Board for a variance. Mr.
Douglas is requesting feedback and input from the Planning Commission to take before the ZHB. With
the addition of the garage structure and the parking area, the total additional impervious area is
approximately 4,100 sq. ft. on a 1.7 acre lot.

       A Weidinger/Deal motion that the Millersville Borough Planning Commission recommend to
the Millersville Borough Zoning Hearing Board to look favorably upon the request for the square
footage variance due to the size of the lot and the enclosure of extra vehicles passed unanimously.


       c.      Discussion of Zoning Appeal for Tattoo Business in Neighborhood Commercial
               District

        The owners of the tattoo business are appealing the validity of the Zoning Ordinance which does
not allow their business at the location of the Manor Avenue Plaza.


OLD BUSINESS

BOROUGH MANAGER

       None.
