Happy New Year — Updates
Happy New Year, Strong Towns Advocates!
Our resolution EVERY year is to continue advocating for increased affordable housing, better transit, and an overall better community. This month marks the first anniversary of STHV, and we've had some time to reflect on if we've been able to achieve this goal. We'd like to thank each and every one of you STHVers for taking your time to attend council meetings, contact representatives, and share your desires for a better future with the broader public.
With the new year comes a new borough council. New members, including Matt Herndon, will meet with sitting council members tonight in the second borough council meeting of the year. Some hot-topic items are on the agenda for this year, such as the Responsible Contractor Ordinance, and the zoning rewrite. The zoning rewrite, which will be the first comprehensive rewrite since the 1950s, is long in the making. We are eager to see what progress is made this year.
On January 18th @7 there is a joint zoning meeting where the Council will be working on a new zoning code! We will be there to support positive reform that matches our goals and hope to see you there. Look out for further information before it happens!

Walk, bike, and drive safely everyone!
