Shoreham Unified Development Regulations (2023)

OVERVIEW 

On October 16, 2023 the Planning Commission completed its work updating the zoning regulations, funded in part by a DHCD Bylaw Modernization Grant.

A primary goal of this project was to increase housing opportunities for residents of all income levels by making it easier to develop affordable, smaller homes on smaller parcels in the Zoning Districts, particularly where there is municipal water and wastewater treatment.

The Planning Commission proposes to reorganize and add subdivision regulations into the previous document and to change its name to the “Shoreham Unified Development Regulations”.
