Comprehensive Review of Reading Zoning Bylaw

The Town of Reading is in the process of comprehensively revising and updating the Town’s Zoning Bylaw. The Town of Reading has created a Zoning Advisory Committee (ZAC) to provide oversight and guidance for this project, with the Community Services Director/Town Planner acting as the primary staff contact person. The Zoning Bylaw has been completely revised and the ZAC has met approximately forty times since the project started late in 2013 to review and finalize drafts of the new provisions.
