The following announcement was provided by City Councilor Tony Palomba:

Please join me and staff from the Department of Community Development and Planning for a program titled “Planning and Zoning in Watertown.” 

This very timely presentation, given the ongoing development in town, will take place on Tuesday, October 18 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM in the City Council Chambers on the second floor of City Hall, 149 Main St. 

This is a hybrid meeting with remote participation by zoom at https://watertown-ma.zoom.us/j/88996463499. There is no need to register ahead of time. WCA-TV will broadcast and record the meeting.

After a few words about the ongoing Comprehensive Plan Review process, we will discuss the role of zoning as a tool for planning, the mechanics of the zoning process, and the role of the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals.

 Most importantly the staff will present two case studies, one of a residential development and one of a commercial development, of how a developer’s proposal moves through the permitting process. There will also be time for questions.
