The City of Middletown is currently in the process of updating the city's planning and zoning code. These are the regulations that address how properties can be used within different areas of the city, as well as site design elements such as signage, landscaping, parking, and the subdivision of land. This MiddletownByDesign site will be used as a project website where the interested citizens can keep up to date on the progress of the project, download draft documents, and provide feedback on the project.

The consultants, City staff, and members of City Council, Planning Commission, and the Board of Zoning Appeals have been working together to develop a draft Middletown Development Code that will streamline both the zoning and subdivision regulations for the City of Middletown. Below are links to download a summary memorandum that outlines where there were significant changes to the regulations as well as a link to download the entire draft.  You may also download a more in-depth evaluation of the existing regulations under the "Project Files" tab. For those who may be interested in select topics, we have also included links to download individual chapters of the regulations. The City is working to initiate the adoption of the updated regulations in January 2017. Feel free to review these drafts and contact us through the "Contact Us" tab on the top of this page with any feedback or questions.


The City of Middletown is hosting an open house to present the draft development code and zoning map. Come out to learn about the major changes to land use regulations, ask questions, or provide feedback.
