From March 21-25, the Planning and Development Department hosted Newark Charrette: Planning our Downtown, Together. The charrette brought together stakeholders and citizens to learn thoughts and opinions on zoning and develop a framework for potential revisions in the City’s downtown areas. AECom, the City’s consultant, will give a presentation to Council later this spring capturing the results of the feedback. After receiving direction from Council, the Planning Department and Planning Commission will potentially revise codes.
