Zoning Update

The Barre City Planning Commission has contracted with PlaceSense to update our current zoning bylaws and included Zoning district Map.  PlaceSense assisted the Planning Commission to re-write the current Municipal Plan, and the zoning updates were one of the items identified needing to be updated.  PlaceSense has completed a Technical Review of the Municipal Plan to identify the land use needs of the City.  Feel free to review this comprehensive table.

Through the work done by the Commission over the last 8 months, we have proposed going from 8 zoning districts to 13 zoning districts.  Proposed are more residential and mixed use districts that reflect how areas of our City currently function.

As of March 20, 2017, Draft Zoning Map and Draft Unified Development Ordinance Part 1 and Part 2 are here for public inspection.  We welcome comments any time – in writing, via email to the Planning Director, or feel free to attend a Planning Commission meeting any time.

The Second Public Informational Meeting is being held Thursday, May 25th, 2017 at 6:30 pm in Council Chambers.

Thank you for your time and help as we update our Ordinance.
