Haverhill Holds Public Commit on Reducing Lot Sizes


Tonight, Haverhill will hold public comment for a zoning change that would reduce the minimum lot area in residential rural areas from 80,000 square feet to 40,000 square feet.

The change is designed to reverse a decision made around 2000 to slow housing growth by having larger lot sizes.  Reducing the lot sizes to increase housing growth is in line with the adopted Haverhill Vision 2035 Master Plan.

The Haverhill Planning Board will meet tonight at 7pm in the City Council Chambers at Haverhill City Hall.
