OK, I’ve used this line before, but to paraphrase Mark Twain, in Newton everybody talks about zoning but nobody does anything about it.

Trevor Jones of the TAB provides some background here.
And you can find the actual documents right here.
I’m expecting a heated, 100-plus comments on this thread folks (unless my friend Mike Striar chooses to add something about high school start times, in which case make it 103 comments!). So send the kids off to the in-laws for the weekend, start reading up and post your comments here.
