Update #21

Think Globally Act Locally Zoning & Sustainability

The Zoning Redesign project is the first comprehensive look at updating and improving Newton’s Zoning Ordinance in more than 60 years. This presents an opportunity to better align Newton’s core value of environmental sustainability with best practices in regulation to achieve climate resilience, clean water, and quality of our environment.

On Wednesday, September 27th a Zoning Redesign event series will launch with “Think Globally, Act Locally: Zoning for a Sustainable Newton”. The planning team will present proposals for a stormwater ordinance, green building design and renewable energy/energy efficiency, among other sustainability in zoning topics. The series will run through May 2018. Each event is about a different topic and will be held at Newton Free Library, 300 Homer St. from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
