Newburyport Zoning RecodificationNewburyport, MA
The City of Newburyport retained Community Opportunities Group, Inc. to do a recodification of their zoning ordinance in partnership with the City. The update, now nearing completion, has been conducted in conjunction with the drafting and completion of their Master Plan. The zoning recodification seeks to address master plan goals and objectives, as well as issues related to ordinance organization, modernization of the Table of Uses, altering the Table of Dimensional Requirements to reflect existing conditions, review processes, design guidelines, performance standards, hazard mitigation, and a prioritization of historic preservation and climate resiliency.
