It has come to my attention that there is a meeting tonight at the Owen Brown Community Center (7:30 PM) regarding the future of New Town Zoning outside the downtown area. I would encourage any that have the time available to attend.
For those that attend, I suggest looking at the book "Creating a New City - Columbia, Maryland." This book, edited by Robert Tennenbaum is a first person account of how the city of Columbia came into being. A chapter written by Louis Nippard details how New Town Zoning came into being. It is a must read if you wish to understand the various aspects of the zoning regulations.
