Keene is updating its zoning & permitting processes to create a simpler & more efficient experience for all.

The City’s land use regulations have helped us grow to where we are today, and we’re streamlining them to ensure that we can continue to benefit from new economic opportunities while maintaining Keene’s unique character.

 

SIMPLE

 New regulations will be easy to navigate & will include graphics to outline a clear process, from start to finish.

EFFICENT

The updated structure will provide a set of clear procedures for development queries, & will create a more streamlined application process - eliminating the need to navigate multiple points of contact.

THOUGHTFUL

Although our regulations have worked in the past, they can be outdated & confusing.  This update will help guide us into the future, while protecting the crucial elements that make this a great place to live, work, & play.

Proposed Land Development Code Update (Oct 2020): 

On October 13, 2020, City staff submitted to City Council Ordinances O-2020-10 & O-2020-11 proposing the establishment of a Land Development Code and proposing changes to the City's downtown Zoning Districts. For more info on these ordinances, and the schedule/process for adoption, click below.
