For the past several years a group of volunteers has been working on an overhaul of Southborough’s zoning bylaws. The goal was to have it ready for voters to consider at Town Meeting in April, but the committee has decided to hold off on the vote.

Reports the Metrowest Daily News:

(Zoning Advisory Committee Chairman Don Morris), who is also chairman of the Planning Board, requested an extra $1,274 Tuesday in the board’s budget on behalf of the Zoning Advisory Committee. He said his committee needs the money because it hasn’t finished the overhaul and needs to spend some money on it in fiscal 2013.

Morris said the work is almost done. A draft is finished and has been reviewed by a consultant, he said, and will be available sometime in the next few months.

Morris said the committee wanted to give the public enough time to review the information and not rush the topic to Town Meeting.
