Danvers Downtown Corridor Special Town Meeting


Danvers will hold a Special Town Meeting today starting at 7:30pm in the Danvers High School auditorium. Among the articles on the warrant is a zoning bylaw change that would create new rules and regulations for the Downtown Corridor.

The Downtown Corridor rezoning is divided into three subdistricts known as the Core District, the Live/Work District, and the High Street Corridor.  The Core District would allow increased density of both residential and mid-sized commercial development.  The Live/Work District would allow for a variety of housing choices and civic spaces along the Danvers Rail Trail.  The High Street Corridor would focus on commercial development and increasing walkability.

You can find the proposed motion, maps of the Downtown Corridor and subdistricts, design standards and guidelines, and an FAQ here.
