In August 2020, I had the pleasure of having a conversation with Councilor Crossley, Chair of the Zoning & Planning Committee of the City Council (ZAP). As a follow-up, this evening, to that program, I spoke with Deb about the City’s progress on zoning redesign, with a focus on:
- A brief refresher on zoning principles
- Actions taken to-date, since August 2020
- Village Redesign, Phase I; citizen engagement/ outcomes
- Village Redesign Phase II; zoning to achieve public policy objectives
Please watch for an upcoming program on the MBTA Communities legislation and what it might mean for Newton.
