Open Space Residential Design (OSRD) Bylaws

The Planning Board is considering proposing a Town Meeting article to amend the Zoning Bylaw by adding a provision for Open Space Residential Design (OSRD).

This was last considered in 2008. This concept is also sometimes referred to as “Conservation Zoning” or “Natural Resource Protection Zoning.” The Planning Board will focus its meeting of September 24, 2018 on discussing this concept, including a presentation by MassAudubon.
