MPIC Subcommittees

The MPIC has formed a number of subcommittees to advance recommendations in the Master Plan. These are:

Historic and Cultural Resources Working Group

This group will create an action plan and advance the Master Plan strategies related to the Town’s Historic and Cultural Resource Areas.

Mill Brook Corridor Study Group

This group will look at past studies of the Mill Brook Corridor, and take the next steps toward their implementation.  The Mill Brook was recognized in the Master Plan as a “hidden gem [with the] potential to spawn transformative change".

Residential Study Group

Following a resolution of the 2016 Annual Town Meeting, the Residential Study Group was formed to recommend revisions to the Zoning Bylaw that address concern for neighbor impacts of new residential construction in established neighborhoods.

Zoning Bylaw Working Group

Following the recodification of the Arlington Zoning Bylaw (ZBL), the Zoning Bylaw Working Group will review and propose amendments to the ZBL as identified through the Master Plan and the recodification processes.

Zoning Recodification Group

This group oversaw the completion of a comprehensive zoning update. The recodified Arlington Zoning Bylaw (ZBL) was updated and revised to be clearer, internally consistent, reflective of the Master Plan, and in compliance with M.G.L. Chapter 40A and current case law. The recodified ZBL was adopted by Special Town Meeting on February 12, 2018 and approved by the Attorney General in June 2018.
