In the past twelve months, many planning meetings have been held among Easton’s numerous elected and appointed officials and private investors. Normally that should lead to the right projects for our city. During this public process, countless highly qualified Easton residents and real estate owners with decades of urban planning, design and development experience have voiced objections to proposed changes to Easton’s current and protective zoning laws. If approved, ill-conceived changes to our city’s local zoning ordinance will open up a Pandora’s box for enormous, out-of-scale construction within our livable neighborhoods and along our incomparable location at the confluence of magnificent natural waterways.
