Medford Zoning Review

Medford is looking to overhaul its zoning system, and is a good proxy for "the next ring" of towns beyond Boston.

Personally, I'd like to see places upzoned (most zones were drawn to simply confirm what was there, like where the R2/R1 line was basically drawn to put all two-flats in R2 and all single-families in R1 ). In particular, I'd like to see multifamily within 1000' of the West Medford CR station.

Hearing coming up in a half hour from now (Wednesday, Jan 5th, 6pm)
