§ 160-2.  Purpose.
The purpose of these Site Plan Review Regulations is to protect the public health, safety and welfare; to ensure the adequacy of traffic and public safety equipment access, circulation, and parking; to ensure the provision of adequate buffers, landscaping and screening to protect adjoining properties against detrimental or offensive uses on the site, including but not limited to unsightly or obnoxious appearance, smoke, and noise; to protect against adverse environmental impacts from a proposed development, including inadequate disposal or storage of sewage, refuse and other wastes, and inadequate surface drainage; and to reasonably minimize the projected demands for Town facilities, services, schools and public ways. The Planning Board may exercise its broadest discretion to assure that the site usage is compatible with the stated objectives of the Master Plan of the Town.

D. Penalties.
