Zoning Articles Proposed for 2019 Annual Town Meeting

Zoning Articles Proposed for 2019 Annual Town Meeting

Fourteen proposed zoning changes have been submitted into the 2019 annual town meeting warrant. The Planning Board is required by law to hold a public hearing on every zoning bylaw and zoning map change. The public hearing date of each is noted below. The draft language of the Planning Board’s articles may be modified after review by Town Counsel and following the public hearing, and the Board may also decide not to proceed with an article.

Public participation is an integral part of the process. Comments may be voiced at the public hearing, and may also be sent via mail or email to the Board in advance of the hearing (elainel@hopkintonma.gov). In addition to the several Planning Board articles, there are 4 citizens’ petitions which propose changes to the Zoning Bylaw. The Planning Board articles are listed first, and the citizens’ petitions follow.
