Design Guidelines and Area Plans Referenced in the Zoning Ordinance
The Zoning Ordinance refers to urban design plans and guidelines that apply to certain parts of the city or to certain categories of development. When a project is required to undergo design review (for example, if it requires a special permit from the Planning Board), it is important to review the plans and guidelines that are applicable to that area or development type and to demonstrate how the proposed development conforms to those plans and guidelines.
