For the second time in a year, Norwell is considering zoning changes aimed at energizing its town center.
The annual Town Meeting that convenes on Monday will take up a proposal by the Planning Board that would allow a mix of commercial and residential uses, and lower the hurdles for small businesses to set up shop in the area.
Last year’s annual Town Meeting shot down a previous plan to overhaul the zoning rules in the town center, rejecting a new table of permitted land uses and a related proposal for an overlay district that would have allowed for more flexible development options but given the town more design control.
The Planning Board decided to return to this year’s Town Meeting with a modified-use table proposal only, setting aside the overlay district for now. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
