The Moderator’s Committee on Zoning-FAR was created in response to Warrant Article 12 at the November 2015 Town Meeting. Article 12 sought to modify the definition of “habitable space” in the Zoning By-Law to restrict the construction of out-sized homes. The potential impact of the proposed change on existing homes was noted and alternative approaches were suggested.
