20.037 An Ordinance Relative to Essential Services and Municipal Facilities City of Northampton MASSACHUSETTS In the Year Two Thousand Twenty Upon the Recommendation of Mayor David J. Narkewicz and Planning & Sustainability 20.037 An Ordinance Relative to Essential Services and Municipal Facilities An Ordinance of the City of Northampton, Massachusetts, providing that the Code of Ordinances, City of Northampton, Massachusetts, be amended to indicate that within all use and dimensional tables essential services and municipal facilities do not require a minimum lot size, depth or frontage. This change restores the original intended dimensional requirements and corrects an oversight that occurred in more recent table changes that inadvertently eliminated this provision in some districts. For more than 15 years, the zoning ordinance made clear that minimum lot size was not required for these type of essential services provided by the City. Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of Northampton, in City Council assembled, by adding: 1) A footnote to Chapter 350 Attachments 4-8, 18, 24: * No Minimum Lot size, depth, or frontage required for essential services or municipal facilities as defined in 2.1. Minimum setbacks for principal buildings as part of municipal facilities are the same as other principal uses in table above. 2) Adding a line within 350 Attachment 19 showing municipal and essential facilities are allowed by right.
