Okay, so maybe I’m confusing “zoning” with” “weather.” But the truth is that it is possible to change zoning regulations. (Uh, I guess it’s possible to change weather too, just not a good idea!) At least, it has been possible for other communities to change zoning regulations, so why not us? (Although my sympathy goes out to anyone who has to sit on a zoning reform committee…oh yeah, that’s me!)
Newton last conducted a significant review and update of its zoning ordinance in 1987 and is now taking steps to do so again. Phase 1 of the Zoning Reform process kicked-off in February and there’s a significant presentation happening Monday at 6 p.m. in the War Memorial to review this presentation.
