Local News: New Zoning Overlay on Track for Swampscott Train Station


A proposed zoning bylaw could help Swampscott encourage the right kind of development for the blocks surrounding the train depot.

Town officials hosted a public forum on Tuesday to break down the intent behind the Smart Growth M.G.L 40R Overlay District Act, according to Angela Ippolito, chair of the Planning Board. The bylaw allows for the development of dense residential and mixed-use projects near transit stations and town centers, according to the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development. The projects often include more affordable housing.

More coverage the proposal from The Lynn Item.
