From Ward 4 Councilor Chris Markiewicz
There will be a presentation by the City’s planning dept. on the proposed new zoning ordinance Thursday evening March 7th, at Burr School.
The presentation begins at 6.45 p.m. I expect that the Planning Dept. will take questions.
You can read the first draft of the ordinance and find a link to the zoning map ( proposed ) here: http://www.newtonma.gov/gov/planning/lrplan/zoning_redesign.asp
There is a lot to this effort, the first comprehensive change to our zoning ordinance in 70+ years. BTW, I believe much of our immediate neighborhoods here in Ward 4 ( Auburndale and Lower Falls ) is proposed as an R2 district. Details about R2 are in the draft.
I hope to see you on Thursday night. Apologies to those getting duplicate emails, I am hitting all of the listservs that I can.
