The Duck Planning Board has been hard at work reviewing possible zoning amendments to building height, fill/grading, driveways and parking and peat pots as lot coverage. Regarding height and fill, the Board is working to correct a problem that arises when properties are located in the ocean high hazard zone and are above base flood elevation. There have also been problems with the current filling/grading ordinance when dealing with the topography of certain lots. The Board is also looking at options related to stacking parking spaces and requiring the impervious surface of peat systems to be included in lot coverage
