Zoning Ordinance Rewrite Committee

Zoning Ordinance Rewrite Committee

The Town of Brunswick has retained Clarion Associates to update our long, confusing, and outdated zoning ordinance, and we need your help to do it right!

If you are unable to attend a Zoning Ordinance Rewrite Committee (ZORC) meeting you can always submit your comments to the Committee electronically by emailing Planning & Development Director, Anna Breinich at: abreinich@brunswickme.org . All comments will be reviewed by the committee.
