At the November 1, 2011 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, they had a discussion regarding at what point an ice rink in someone’s yard requires a Special Permit approval from the Commission. The discussion:
Discussion Regarding Temporary Seasonal Ice Rinks
The Commission members discussed the issue of whether temporary seasonal ice rinks would require Special Permit approval, like a tennis court, or whether they would not be regulated. The consensus was that if an ice rink was as simple as no lights, no chilling machine, no boards above six inches high, and the ice rink was in the back yard, then it would not require Planning and Zoning Commission approval. If the temporary ice rink is more elaborate than those limitations, then it would require Special Permit approval from the Commission.
