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The Town of Brunswick has retained Clarion Associates to update our long, confusing, and outdated zoning ordinance, and we need your help to do it right!

Thank you to those who attended the Draft Zoning Ordinance “Soft Opening” on July 31st. Below is the PowerPoint presentation from that meeting as well as copies of the draft ordinance and draft zoning maps. Please contact Anna Breinich, FAICP, Director of Planning and Development with comments. Also, please check out our public forum schedule (September-October) below or click here for a printable flyer.
