The LUDRs in their current form were initially adopted in 2001. The town has made a series of minor amendments to the LUDRs over the past 20 years. The 2019 Warren Town Plan recognized that it was time for a comprehensive review and amendment of the LUDRs. The Town Plan identified a need to realign the LUDRs with the town’s planning policies and to address inconsistencies resulting from the many changes that have been made to state statutes and programs over the past two decades. There was also a commitment from the PC to improve the clarity of the LUDRs and the town’s development review and permitting processes.

This review and revision to the Zoning Bylaw were recommended in the 2019 Warren Town Plan.

A final draft of the Warren Land Use and Development Regulations was submitted to the Warren Select Board at their November 8, 2022 meeting. The Select Board has 120 days from that meeting to hold a public meeting to review the final draft regulation.

During the Covid-19 emergency, the Planning Commission was unable to hold a planned series of public meetings to present the draft regulations to the community, answer questions and receive feedback. Instead, the commission created a series of videos and hand-outs so Warren residents, property owners, and business owners can learn about and comment on the proposed regulations remotely.
