Waterfront Business Zones Current WB regulations are severely restrictive de-valuing waterfront property and making re-development economically unfeasible. A study was prepared to look at the different waterfront areas and try to strike a balance between water dependent uses, public access and other uses that can add to the vibrancy of our commercial waterfront areas.
Historic District Commission has been working with the Greenwich Preservation Trust to develop Zoning Regulations that would provide incentives for owners of properties that contribute to our historic resources and the character of the Town. Homes that qualify, may be eligible for use and possibly FAR incentives, that would lead to more preservation and less demolition.
Outdoor Dining: Now is the time to share your opinion with a short, anonymous survey on the Town website www.greenwichct.gov/dining22
For background: At the onset of COVID in 2020, Planning and Zoning changed its outdoor dining policies to support businesses while helping to minimize the spread of the virus. This was done in accordance with the Governor's Executive Orders, CT House Bill #5271, and the Outdoor Dining 2022 Board of Selectman Guidelines. Some people have loved the new outdoor spaces and others have not. The goal is to re-write zoning regulations to meet the desires of the community, while continuing to protect public health and safety. This process will continue to take some time and there will be additional opportunities for public input before any recommendations are put forward this fall.
The survey is only 10 questions long and should take less than 5 minutes to complete. If you have any questions or concerns about the survey or about outdoor dining in general, you can contact Katie.DeLuca@greenwichct.org, Town Planner or Shanice.Becker@greenwichct.org, Planner I.
