The City of Somerville has released the finalized version of its 20-year comprehensive plan, SomerVision, that officials will begin implementing with the June release of a residential zoning study, the city said.

The zoning overhaul is the first revision of the body of laws since 1990. The study will include recommendations for the Board of Aldermen, which will eventually have to approve any planned changes.

"Developing changes to the city's zoning ordinance has got to be a collaborative process with the Board of Aldermen," said Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone, in a statement. "That's as it should be. But SomerVision gives us a shared yardstick to measure proposed changes and come up with new approaches."

The zoning changes predicate development around proposed Green Line Extension stations, details of which the city said it expects to roll out through the summer and fall.
