Zoning Commission

The Boston Zoning Commission maintains and updates Boston's zoning code. In order to fulfill that responsibility, the Commission meets on a regular basis to adopt map and text changes to the Code.  Anyone may petition the Zoning Commission to adopt a map or text change. The Boston Planning & Development Agency typically petitions the Zoning Commission to adopt such changes after a public dialogue and planning process. After a petition is authorized by the BPDA Board, a public notice of a Zoning Commission hearing is advertised online, in the Boston Herald, and other local newspapers at least 20 days in prior to the hearing.
