Developing in the DOZ

Developer's Guide to the Downtown Overlay Zone (DOZ):

The Department of Development has created a Developer's Guide to the Downtown Overlay Zone (DOZ).  Begin with the Step by Step section that will walk you through the various steps to follow for developing a parcel in the DOZ.  Then peruse the additional links for details related to each step.

Process and Forms


The DOZ pre-application form must be submitted for DOZ projects and will be used to determine eligibility under the GEIS development caps.  Please note that a full Planning Board application will need to be completed once the pre application process determines eligibility.  See Downtown Development for more information about the DO, and the DOZ Application Process document for application steps.
