Quiet Town Board zoning meeting - pass in July?

Last night's Dryden Town Board agenda and zoning meeting didn't include much detail. There was some discussion of gravel mining, leaving Planner Dan Kwasnowski to send more detailed mapping information to board members, and some discussion of how to integrate the proposed heavy industrial ban with zoning, but not much detailed discussion of the proposed zoning itself. (The ban would come in a second stage, as amendments.)

Town Attorney Mahlon Perkins is doing a close edit, and is only handing out paper copies at this point, so I'm guessing that there won't be a chance for residents to see it until just about the time it's introduced next month with a public hearing and possible passage in July. The Board sounded like they were much more done with the zoning than they had sounded in the past. I'm not sure if that's because they're actually done or because they're tired of talking about it.

It's not clear to me what the status of the Planned Unit Development and especially subdivision pieces of the zoning are, and it sounded like subdivision might actually wait until the rest of the zoning is passed. However, that didn't sound like the plan before, so mostly I'm confused.
