Code Studio recently began work on a new Zoning Ordinance for the City of Concord, New Hampshire. The project is called ConcordNEXT.

The new Zoning Ordinance will be an engaging, illustrated document that will clearly guide new development with a “character-based” approach to zoning regulation. The transition to character-based zoning is a popular trend for cities that want to encourage dynamic, pedestrian-oriented development that meets the changing social, cultural and economic needs of its community. The regulating tools of character-based zoning focus on the physical form and character of the neighborhood, rather than on the separation of uses found in more conventional ordinances.
