Re: Zoning Providence

The Technical Review and Approaches Report for Re:Zoning Providence is now available online at  This report summarizes the findings of a technical review of the existing Providence Zoning Ordinance performed by the City’s consultants, Camiros, from May to July 2013. The purpose of this review is three-fold: first, the review allows for a more in-depth understanding of the current development regulations; second, it allows for the identification of additional issues not identified during meetings and interviews with City staff and stakeholders; third, it introduces concepts and regulatory approaches that set direction for substantive revisions to be included in the new Zoning Ordinance. The objectives and issues outlined within the report were identified through discussions with staff and stakeholders, and a review of the Ordinance against zoning best practices. It provides a broad assessment of current difficulties within the regulations and preliminary approaches to resolving them.
