PeterboroughHearing for zoning amendment

The Planning Board is proposing a zoning amendment to replace existing residential and commercial zoning district regulations in Article II with a new simplified “Form Based Code”.

The amendment integrates many of the standards found in the Traditional Neighborhood Overlay Zones adopted during the last two years into the new districts. The amendment proposes to eliminate both Traditional Neighborhood Overlay Districts, makes related additions and modifications to the “definitions” section of the ordinance, and shifts “Off Street Parking Regulations” from the Zoning Ordinance to the Planning Board Site Plan Regulations. It also seeks to make it easier to add an accessory dwelling unit to a single-family residence . 

 The first public hearing for the proposed zoning amendment will be held on Monday, Feb. 19, 2018.
