Learn about the proposed new business zoning bylaws for The Great Road and it’s future impacts on your business.
The Bedford Planning Board is proposing new business zoning bylaws for The Great Road corridor that are sensitive to the distinctive personality of the corridor and our town. The proposed bylaws will be presented at Annual Town Meeting on March 26 the new “Great Road Business District” will be comprised of four sub-districts, each with its own unique character, mix of business types, and activity level. The proposed bylaw is highly focused on promoting good building form and function. There’s an emphasis on community-oriented design elements, such as public places to gather; places to sit; walking routes that are safe, pleasant and connected; places to safely park bicycles; and green spaces. Existing businesses/property owners are not required to change anything if the new bylaws are enacted. Only when a property owner decides to redevelop their property would the new bylaw come into play. Planning Board member, Jeff Cohen, will give a brief presentation on the proposed bylaw
Thee Economic Development Office is pleased to announce a new permitting guide that is targeted to small businesses to help them navigate the process of permitting and licensing a new or expanding business in Bedford.
The guide is in an easy-to-read and user-friendly format to promote small business enterprise in Bedford and encourage the types of businesses that Bedford residents would like to see more of based on our recent Great Road Market Study survey.
The permitting guide is the result of collaboration between the departments of Economic Development, Planning, Board of Health, and Code Enforcement. We would also like to thank the Bedford Chamber of Commerce for invaluable input in early drafts.
To view the guide, please download a copy here: Permitting Guide for Small Businesses.
