Zoning Ordinance Revision Steering Committee

Zoning Ordinance Update 

On February 20, 2018, the City Council voted to adopt the 2018 update of Saco’s Comprehensive Plan. The 2018 Comp Plan update was the result of nearly two years of review and discussion by the adhoc committee and City Staff. As a community, our next step is to update our Zoning Ordinances to align with the City of Saco’s land use vision: The most forward-thinking land use policies in the State of Maine that ensure financial stability, environmental sustainability, and provides opportunities and accessibility to all.
