LOCAL ELECTION VOTING INSTRUCTIONS:

This November, the Town of Bristol requests the adoption of proposed amendments to the local Zoning Regulations to include subdivision regulations for the town.

The resulting proposed document would be named the “Town of Bristol Unified Development Regulations.” The amended document is intended to implement the Bristol Town Plan and streamline the development review process, which affects all types of development throughout the town.

Bristol voters have the opportunity to vote in favor of or against these proposed amendments via “Article 1” on a local election ballot. Please note: This ballot will need to be requested by voters from the Town of Bristol and will NOT be mailed to you automatically.

For an overview of the changes read the Planning Commission Transmittal Memo and Report, August 7, 2020.
