Chester’s proposed development bylaws available for viewing here

The Chester Planning Commission will hold a public meeting on Monday, May 19, 2014 to take comments on the proposed Unified Development Bylaws it has been working on for more than a year.  The bylaws are a combination of three documents that currently govern land use in Chester – the Zoning Regulations, the Flood Hazard Standards and the Subdivision Standards. After this hearing, the bylaws go back to the Chester Select Board for review, public hearings and approval.

Among the many changes to the regulations are new zoning districts (Village Center and Adaptive 3) as well as increased minimum lot sizes in several districts, new noise standards and revised allowed and conditional uses.

Next week The Chester Telegraph will publish an article on the changes, but in the mean time click the links below to read the documents for yourself, and feel free to email us with questions on what impact these changes might have on you and the town.
