Town of Braintree Seal

Press Release



Braintree, MA – The public comments and concerns regarding the Comprehensive Zoning Proposal on March 25th has demonstrated that there is a need to establish a zoning working group comprised of Braintree residents. 


This step is a reset button on the issue of zoning and to create an opportunity for residents to become active contributors to ensure that any zoning changes will reflect the values of our community.


The goal of the zoning working group would be to review and discuss concerns relating to the Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance and Map as presented by the Braintree Planning and Community Development Department and provide input and recommendations for modifications to the current Proposal. 


Each town councilor will identify two volunteer residents from their respective district(s) and at large who would serve on this zoning working group to ensure that a variety of ideas are represented.


Planning Board Chairman Robert Harnais would serve as the coordinator of the zoning working group and the Braintree Planning, and Community Development Department will serve as a resource to the group. 


We all are committed to the success of our Town. Updating the Zoning Ordinance is important to protecting our neighborhoods and maintaining the character and quality of life in Braintree.
