Current Update 
January 2023

The Town has engaged a consultant, Barrett Planning, LLC to undertake an audit of our current zoning and make recommendations for restructuring the document to make it easier to read and use as well as eliminate internal inconsistencies and conflicts with state law.  

The Town is also working on creating zoning in the coming year that will comply with the MBTA Communities Legislation.  As of 1/31/2023, the Action Plan was submitted.
