City of Fitchburg SmartCode District
The city adopted Chapter 23 SmartCode District on October 12, 2010. The SmartCode District is the city's Traditional Neighborhood Design Ordinance (TND) and is an optional alternative to conventional zoning. The SmartCode places emphasis on form and scale and works to create walkable, mixed-use development.
