The Department of Town Planning and Economic Development has been working on a proposed Multi Use Overlay District for the Downtown Business District of Norwood Center. This zoning bylaw change would allow for the potential redevelopment and creation of buildings with multiple uses. This concept harkens back to a time when business owners had their shop on the first floor while lived in a residence upstairs.
Have you noticed the vacancies in Downtown Norwood? Making this change can help because building owners can invest in their properties in new ways. Retail has changed and the long, narrow storefronts are obsolete. Adopting this bylaw opens the potential for a thriving downtown. Bring people to downtown, businesses will follow!
To learn more about this bylaw, come to the Willett room at the Norwood Civic Center Wednesday, April 3rd at 7pm. A slideshow presentation will be given. Your input and questions will be welcome.
The Farmers Market opens on the beautiful Norwood Town Common on Tuesday, June 18th. We are excited to be thinking of warmer weather, gorgeous long days, and fresh fruits and vegetables. It's always a fun time on the Common during the Farmers Market!
