The Sussex Borough Council unanimously rescinded a zoning change ordinance because of cost on May 20.

The rescinded ordinance would have changed zoning from public to C1 (Commercial) around the Bank Street area.

Councilman Salvatore Lagattuta said that the zoning change, which if done now would cost about $2,500, will cost less in four years if implemented along with the Borough’s master plan.

Originally the ordinance began because of a zone request to change it from public to residential at the old Public Library building. Currently, the originator is getting a variance from the Planning Board.

The Planning Board recommended not changing the zone to Residential. After discussions, the Council voted to change the zoning to Commercial.

Town Planner Ken Nelson recommended in the 2009 master plan to change the zone to C1. The update for the master plan will occur in 2018, which will bring the cost down to $1,500.

Councilwoman Linda Masson said that there is “not a critical reason that it has to be done at this time.”
