Zoning Bylaw Recodification

Phase 1: Reformat & Reorganize

The first phase of this project involved recodifying the Town’s Zoning Bylaw into a “new Zoning Bylaw” having a redesigned, contemporary, and sound framework and solid foundation. This new Zoning Bylaw has all of the basic provisions of the old Zoning Bylaw, just transferred, repositioned, and renumbered. THE NEW ZONING BYLAW CAN BE FOUND HERE.

Phase 2: Modify & Amend

The second phase of the project is focused on reviewing the bylaw for errors, inconsistencies, or areas that need to be better defined. This work will likely happen over several months and will involve a number of meetings of the Working Group. The Zoning Bylaw Issues Topic for Phase 2 document below is an outline of the topics that will be part of this phase.
