The Zoning Advisory Committee will hold its annual Public Forum on October 26, 2020 at 7:00 PM, remotely via Zoom.

The Zoning Advisory Committee is a nine-member board appointed by the Planning Board,
typically with representatives from the Planning Board, Conservation Commission, Chamber of
Commerce and the Board of Appeals, as well as At-Large positions. The Committee meets
one or two times a month, usually on Monday evenings.

The purpose of the Zoning Advisory Committee is to review and develop proposals for zoning
bylaw and zoning map amendments, and make recommendations to the Planning Board.
Zoning bylaws generally regulate the use of land, buildings, and structures.

The purpose of the Zoning Advisory Committee‘s annual public forum is to hear ideas and
proposals for desired changes to the Zoning Bylaw and/or the Zoning Map from residents. This
is an opportunity to propose changes to the land uses permitted in specific areas in Hopkinton,
the manner in which certain uses are permitted, dimensional requirements, or other ideas with
respect to land use regulation.

The Zoning Advisory Committee encourages residents to attend this forum and provide ideas
and proposals for amendments to the Zoning Bylaws, whether they are changes to regulations
currently in place or entirely new regulations. Access information for the Zoom meeting is
