Essex Considers Mixed-Use Downtown

2.10.20

 

The Essex Planning Board is preparing a new zoning bylaw to create a mixed-use zoning district downtown. The concept has been shown support by the Board of Selection, the Economic Development Committee, and the Essex Housing Coalition. The most widespread trend in zoning for multi-family housing has been to adopt mixed use zoning.

After completion of the proposal by the Planning Board a public hearing will precede the Town Meeting in May.  Since the change pertains to zoning bylaws it will require a two-thirds majority to pass.
