The City of Newton’s Zoning Redesign project is a multi-year effort to update and rewrite Newton’s Zoning Ordinance. Zoning is the set of laws governing such things as the size and shape of buildings, additions and renovations, and what types of activities can take place in which buildings.

Zoning Redesign is an ongoing effort going back to the early 2010s. City staff and the City Council Zoning and Planning Committee (ZAP) are committed to a diverse and robust engagement process. More information and regular updates about Zoning Redesign can be found at the Current Drafting Status page on this website.
