Article 62, Section 19 establishes Neighborhood Design Overlay Districts (NDOD) as overlays to certain subdistricts within the Charlestown Neighborhood District. The Neighborhood Design Overlay Districts are established to protect the existing scale, quality of the pedestrian environment, character of the residential neighborhoods, and concentrations of historic buildings within the Neighborhood Design Overlay Districts.

  • Change in roof shape, cornice line, street wall height, or building height of an existing building;
  • Erection/extension of a building > 300 or more s.f.;
  • Change in building massing or size/location of door or window openings, where such alteration affects three hundred (300) or more square feet of exterior wall area, or a smaller exterior wall area if expressly provided in the underlying zoning.
