People living in Barre will soon be able to tell the city what they want for the future.
The Granite City will be updating its zoning ordinance citywide. It’s part of the city’s master plan, approved in 2014.
The public has a lot of say in what goes into these updates. Director of Planning & Permitting Janet Shatney says the city “could potentially rewrite the ordinances depending on input.”
Here are a few things they’re looking into now.
“We have our historic downtown district, We are going to keep that. We are looking at buffer areas, where industrial slowly goes to residential. perhaps creating a buffer zone that potentially softens one to the other,” Shatney said.
You can share your thoughts next Thursday night. There will be an open meeting at Alumni Hall starting at 6:30.
