5.5.A Intent

The intent of these regulations is to provide flexibility in site design and development intensity for land in maritime mixed-use areas in order to promote innovative approaches to residential and non-residential development adjacent to wetlands and waterbodies. A waterfront orientation and clustering of new structures and improvements is encouraged for all planned developments in the Maritime Mixed-Use District in order to maximize the preservation of environmental features and increase access to the site.
