This legislative session, with remote Zoom meetings, has been turned on its head. A series of zoning bills that could fundamentally change the fabric of our towns and cities have been voted favorably out of the Planning and Development and Transportation Committees, awaiting a vote in the General Assembly. While some of the most problematic language has been stripped, there is still an opportunity for lawmakers to put it back in or amend it further until the session ends in June.
Do residents even know what is written in the bills? Most likely not.
