 Zoning Advisory Committee (ZAC) Public Forum October 18 – 7:00 PM 
The Zoning Advisory Committee will hold a public forum on Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 7:00 PM in Room 211 of the Town Hall, at which time it would like to hear ideas that Town Boards, Committees, officials, organizations and the general public have with respect to desired changes to the Zoning Bylaw and/or the Zoning Map. Zoning bylaws generally regulate the use of land, buildings and structures. This is an opportunity to propose changes to the permitted land uses in specific areas in Hopkinton, and other ideas with respect to land use regulation. The Committee invites you to the hearing to present your ideas and suggestions and to submit ideas/proposals in writing, especially if you cannot be present. It is recommended that a written summary of the idea or proposal be emailed (elainel@hopkinton.org) or sent to Elaine Lazarus, Director of Land Use, Planning and Permitting, at Town Hall prior to October 13. For more information, please email or call Elaine Lazarus at 508-497-9755.
