Manchester-by-the-Sea to Update 1978 Zoning Bylaw
July 17th at 9:01pm.
After over 40 years of slight changes and reorganization, Manchester-By-The-Sea has begun to take steps for a Zoning Recodification and Update. This comes on the heels of the new Manchester Master Plan, which calls for more diversification of housing opportunities as well as opening up commercial areas for the possibility of residential housing.
This endeavor is scheduled to overlap multiple Planning Board meetings as topics being tackled range from cleanliness/readability issues to major procedural changes. Once a rough draft is completed, the plans will head to a Community Workshop before finally arriving at a formal Planning Board Hearing where an approval of two-thirds will be needed for it to pass.
Attention Manchester-By-The-Sea Realtors, the next meeting will be held today July, 17th at 5pm in the Town Hall Room 5. This will be to discuss the general recodification and get an update from Mark Bobrowski, who is the consultant hired to assist in this process.
