"Welcome to the Housing Committee page! The Committee has completed its charge and adjourned. The final recommendations have been adopted by City Council, but we still need your help! 

The Committee recommended two things:

1. Three amendments to the City's zoning ordinance; and
2. A Housing Policy

The Housing Policy has been adopted by the Council, but tthe zoning changes are currently being reviewed by the Planning Board and are intended to be in front of City Council later this fall.  For more information click here

Portsmouth Listens will also be running a dialogue integrated with the process, similar to what occurred with the West End zoning changes. This process will likely occur in the fall of 2017.
