Newport City Becomes First in Vermont to Adopt Form-Based Code

In just eight months, thanks to a dedicated partnership between city officials and community organizations, Newport City has formally adopted Form-based code into their zoning bylaws. “Form-based code is a three-pronged approach to zoning,” stated Paul Dreher, Newport City Zoning Administrator. “It benefits the
city with increased tax base, business benefits from expedited predictable permitting and it benefits the community with better public realm.”
