May 12, 2022 @ 6pm | City of Trenton Planning Board
Join us at a virtual meeting of the Trenton Planning Board as we review comments received on the Draft Land Development Ordinance during the public comment period. City staff and consultants will present an overview of the comments received, and will discuss the resolution of issues raised during the comment period. Members of the public will have an opportunity to provide additional comments during the meeting.
Trenton’s new Draft Land Development Ordinance (LDO), and Draft Zoning Map are now available for public review. The LDO will be a key tool for implementing many of the policies contained in the Trenton250 Comprehensive Master Plan.
The City has also produced a series of supplementary materials, introducing some of the key changes and discussing the importance of the LDO update. A one page summary (at-a-glance), and a four page summary (providing more detail for those interested) are available to view and download at the links below.
A draft analysis of the City’s current Redevelopment Area Plans and their statuses has been prepared in support of the Trenton 250 LDO Update. The report can be accessed by clicking here, or visiting the Project Documents and Presentations Page below.
The City of Trenton has embarked on an update to the City’s Land Development Ordinance.
The Trenton 250 LDO Update process will help to better preserve, strengthen, and protect the historic physical patterns of development that define the character of the City, direct reinvestment to targeted areas, and create new opportunities for economic development, helping to make Trenton a more sustainable, livable, and business-friendly community. An updated LDO can address these problems, and provide opportunities for Trenton to move toward the vision established in “Trenton 250.” In short — modernizing the LDO is a big step in helping Trenton achieve its long-term vision, and there’s no time like the present.
The Trenton 250 Comprehensive Master Plan established a long-term vision for the future of the Trenton, and called for a number of new policies to move the City toward that vision. The Plan provides mapped and written policy about how development should occur within the City. The new LDO will take these policies as its base, and provide a set of new development regulations.
The first step in this process is the Technical Review and Approaches Report. This Report lays out the potential areas of revision and new approaches that can help Trenton achieve its vision. We invite you to attend a meeting where Camiros, assisted by WRT, the consultants hired to help the City create a new LDO, will present an overview of the Report and take questions and comments. We invite you to attend and provide your feedback!

The Trenton250 LDO Update Technical Review & Approaches Report is now available! View or download the report by clicking the link here, or by visiting the Project Documents and Presentations page.
The document focuses on regulatory issues and potential revisions identified during the technical review of the City’s current Land Development Ordinance, and offers conceptual approaches to resolving specific issues. Importantly, this report is not intended to present every needed change, as some will be minor changes that help to “clean up” Trenton’s Ordinance and create a user-friendly document, while others are much more detailed revisions that will need to be worked out during the drafting process.
The findings of the Technical Review and Approaches Report will be presented at a public meeting to be held later this spring. Please check back to this website for more information as future events are scheduled.
