The Boston Planning & Development Agency will host a virtual public meeting on December 5, 2023 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM to present a draft zoning text amendment that will create new Squares + Streets zoning districts to be adopted into the Boston Zoning Code. 

These proposed zoning districts will support the ongoing work of the Squares + Streets planning initiative and focus on active areas within neighborhood centers and along main streets. Staff will also present on proposed updates to the “Regulation of Uses” section of the Boston Zoning Code (Article 8) to better organize and modernize land uses for today’s needs.

The draft zoning amendment will be developed based on comments and feedback shared by stakeholders at previous public meetings and community office hours, as well as feedback from building and design professionals.

To learn more about the Squares + Streets initiative, check out the Squares + Streets website for more information. Updates on the zoning amendments proposed as part of the initiative can be found on the Squares + Streets Zoning Districts page.

Interpretation will be provided in Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Haitian Creole, and Cape Verdean Creole. Additional interpreting services and document translation services are available upon request at no cost to you. Please request interpreting services no later than 5 days before the meeting date.
