Here are some examples for changes that are happening. 
If you own property on the right side of Union Street from Francis Street just past Coffin, Article 41 wants to change the zoning from R1 to ROH, what does this mean for you? Well for one if you want to have a pool today you can but once these properties are rezoned you will lose that privilege and it will affect the value of your property. (Download the map)

Another example would be article 40, where commercial property will be zoned into residential property, for the last number of years commercial property island wide is being zoned into residential, making it illegal for many small business to operate and subjects them to fines and penalties for using their properties that they purchased with the intent of running a business.  The out zoning of commercial land on island has a very serious unintended consequences, it makes the uphill battle for small business owner even more difficult.  For the Article 40 Map – click here:
