Annotated Versions of the Current Zoning Ordinance

The documents below do not reflect changes made by the Planning Board during their Spring 2013 review of the zoning implementation process.

These documents show where a provision of the current zoning ordinance is located in the consolidated or staff draft. Red underlined text provides either the section reference in the draft or use name changes from the current to the proposed ordinance. Text highlighted in blue deals with grandfathering language, which will be addressed in the coming months. Text highlighted in green deals with floating zones that are retained in the draft Code. Text with a red strike through has not been included in the most recent draft. Remaining sections of the code will be added soon.
