Pattern Book (2016-2018)

Pattern Book

Newton's Pattern Book was released online on October 19, 2018. The Pattern Book marks an important step in the process to create the First Draft of the proposed Zoning Ordinance.  Along with the book is a database that has enabled the Planning Department to build a first draft based on the Newton specific data.  Thank you to everyone who submitted comments on the Draft Pattern Book since 2016. These comments and responses are posted here.
