The Chapter 19 Clarifying Edit project is a reorganization of Rockland’s land use regulations to make them easier to understand and use. It includes summary tables for finding and comparing information at a glance, more concise, user-friendly language, and an intuitive and searchable format. No significant changes in policy or requirements are proposed except where necessary to align with standard practice, eliminate conflicts and inconsistencies, or to address legal issues. A future phase of this project will address needed substantive changes to Zoning and Land Use standards.
Rockland City Council will begin its formal review of the changes in January 2023.
