Big Zoning Changes Proposed in Northampton

The Northampton City Council will discuss some big proposed zoning changes Thursday night.  The plan would allow more residential density, and reflect existing conditions in the older neighborhoods.  Some are expressing concern the zoning would change the character of their streets and lead to higher property values, and therefore higher taxes.  Supporters say the zoning is in keeping with the city’s Sustainable Northampton Plan.
