Civic engagement is the new black! And you don’t have to miss this one—you can participate from NOW until Thursday night! The Character-Based Zoning initiative is seeking public input on the zoning rules to which new Portsmouth developments will need to adhere.
I popped in yesterday to the charrette (or public input session), which continues through today, tomorrow, and wraps up on Thursday. Give your input now, which is always more effective than protesting later! Visit the Plan Portsmouth website to learn more about Character-Based Zoning, Phase 2: North End and Islington Street Corridor.
Check out the completed plan from Burlington, VT that the same firm who is running Portsmouth’s charrettes put together—it won Plan of the Year from American Planning Association!
And check out the video My Friend Dan got at the meeting this evening.
