UPDATED April 10: Zoning is the set of laws that regulate how land is used -- everything from what can be built to how buildings can be used. It shapes buildings, blocks and entire neighborhoods.
Yet how it works can be confusing. Please join us at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, as those involved seek to demystify Arlington's zoning.
This will be a strictly informational forum, with plenty of time to answer your questions.
Speakers are Amy Dain, Laura Weiner, Jenny Raitt, Rachel Zsembery, Alex Bagnall and Steve Revilak. They are a Boston-area zoning expert, as well as representatives from Arlington's Department of Planning and Community Development, the town Redevelopment Board and Envision Arlington.
They will cover:
- What is zoning: an overview;
- A brief history of how zoning was created in communities like ours;
- General information about Arlington's zoning maps;
- Pictures: What types of structures current zoning allows and doesn't allow; and
- Your questions.
This presentation is expected to be taped, but details about that remain incomplete.
