Historic Home Designation Change ?
A consultant has suggested that 50 years be the minimum age of a home to be considered as having potential historical significance in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant Historic District . Currently 75 years is the cutoff. If adopted, the change could add more than 100 homes to a list of building that might be considered important for reasons of history, culture or architecture.
This possible change will be considered on November 17, 2010 at a meeting of the Mt. Pleasant Planning Commission, which in turn will make a recommendation to Town Council.
The consultant noted that within the Old Village there are a number of mid 20th century homes that the state recognizes as historic but the town does not.

A new town of Mt. Pleasant ordinance taking affect in mid March 2010 will allow home owners to build or utilize an accessory dwelling on their lot and to also rent it out as long as the home owner meets certain conditions. They must provide a site plan showing that the new unit will be set back far enough from the property lines and will have its own off-street parking space. No accessory dwelling can exceed 850 square feet or 25 feet in height. Only one will be allowed per lot and the property owner must live in either the main house or the accessory. No accessory unit may house more than three people.
Neighborhoods/subdivisions may have to modify their covenants and bylaws to allow for accessory dwellings.
