WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Mayor of West Springfield, William Reichelt, is proposing a zoning map change to the Town Council.

The amendment proposes changing the zoning of the western side of Union Street.

Mayor Reichelt says the type and scale of the industry in the region has evolved over time while our zoning has stayed the same, creating discord between the regulations and reality.

The proposed amendment is based on giving the properties that are struggling under the limitations of the current regulations the opportunity to be occupied with greater variety of uses that are suitable and complimentary to the neighborhood, says Reichelt.
