The Zoning Advisory Committee is a nine-member board appointed by the Planning Board,
typically with representatives from the Planning Board, Conservation Commission,
Chamber of Commerce and the Board of Appeals, as well as At-Large positions. The
Committee meets one or two times a month, usually on Monday evenings.
The purpose of the Zoning Advisory Committee is to review and develop proposals for
zoning bylaw and zoning map amendments, and make recommendations to the Planning
Board. Zoning bylaws generally regulate the use of land, buildings, and structures.
The Zoning Advisory Committee holds an annual public forum in the fall to hear ideas and
proposals for desired changes to the Zoning Bylaw and/or the Zoning Map from residents.
This is an opportunity to propose changes to the land uses permitted in specific areas in
Hopkinton, the manner in which certain uses are permitted, dimensional requirements, or
other ideas with respect to land use regulation.
The Zoning Advisory Committee is holding the 2021 Public Forum on October 25, 2021 at
7:00 PM, remotely via Zoom. The Zoning Advisory Committee encourages residents to
attend this forum and provide ideas and proposals for amendments to the Zoning Bylaws,
whether they are changes to regulations currently in place or entirely new regulations.
