An overhauled ordinance aimed at making zoning more predictable and fair while enacting more than 100 policies and goals called for by the community in the SomerVision Comprehensive Plan, has been submitted by Mayor Curtatone to the
Board of Aldermen, and the City is seeking public input and feedback on the ordinance.
