Get me rewrite: Baltimore peers into its zoning future

What will the city look like over the next few decades? While there is no crystal ball, planners have been working on a rewrite of the city’s zoning code, which will impact how we all live and work in Baltimore. The last time this was done, Richard Nixon was in the White House. The goals stated during the public meetings I have attended this summer stem from a desire by some of the 20-and 30-something residents to make the city’s streets more pedestrian friendly, the corridors greener, and the possible introduction of wind turbines for a new energy source. Next week, that testimony will culminate in the first public presentation of a draft of the new zoning code, to be unveiled in a public meeting Monday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the city office building located at 417 E. Fayette Street.
