Proposed revisions to the City of Norwalk Building Zone Regulations and Zoning Map will be revealed on Tuesday April 4, 2023 during a virtual presentation on zoom.com. This is the first time in more than 30 years that the City has undertaken a comprehensive rewrite of its regulations, a recommendation that emerged from the 2019 Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD).
In response to this recommendation, the City began the process of updating the regulations in 2021, starting with revisions to the industrial zone regulations and associated map changes in 2022. The city-wide rewrite is the second phase of this wholesale regulation and map update suggested by the POCD.
City zoning staff, along with representatives of the consulting firm Town Planning & Urban Design Collaborative, LLC, will preview proposed regulation and map changes on Tuesday April 4th at 6 p.m. via Zoom. Click here to register for the event.
After the April 4, 2023 meeting, the draft regulations will be made available to the public for review and comment. Later, the draft, revised zoning map made presented at a follow-up meeting, affording the public time to consider the draft regulations before focusing on the map changes.
In upcoming weeks, city zoning staff will conduct outreach meetings with interested groups, such as neighborhood associations, property owners, businesses and other stakeholders to acquire input on the proposed changes. The City of Norwalk Planning and Zoning Commission will also hold work sessions before scheduling public hearings later in the spring or early summer on the proposed regulation and map changes. Public concerns and commentary on the proposed regulations and map changes will be accepted and considered by the Commission as part of the process, and members of the public will have the opportunity to share comments during the public hearings.
