S/he will document existing conditions, examine the existing bylaw and proposed amendments, and look at the practice in other communities, to develop a report recommending changes that will benefit the Town’s goals for private open space. This is an exciting opportunity for someone interested in how land use regulations affect urban landscape design. The successful candidate possesses strong research and writing skills and an ability to work with a variety of stakeholders. Approx 10 hrs/week.
