  • Annual Title 20 (Zoning) Update

      – On April 3 and April 17, 2018, the Planning Board held a public hearing to consider the proposed amendments.

  • University District Neighborhood Character Overlay - 

    A public hearing will be held on April 17th to consider amendments to Title 30 Chapter 20.25 Overlay Districts.  The amendments include the creation and application of the University District Neighborhood Character Overlay which would apply to all residentially zoned lands within the University Neighborhood District.  The intent of the district is to preserve development, redevelopment, and rehabilitation that is compatible with the scale, orientation and setting of original buildings in the neighborhood.  The overlay district is also intended to prevent the loss of housing units in the district by prohibiting parcel aggregation.  The ordinance can be viewed  here .
