PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Providence’s zoning rules have been overhauled for the first time in more than 60 years.

Mayor Angel Taveras on Monday signed an ordinance to update and reimagine zoning rules that were put in place in 1951.

The new rules go into effect on Dec. 24.

The changes include streamlining the development process and making changes to encourage more pedestrian friendly development in certain areas of the city.

Taveras say the changes will help the city “fulfill its vision for 21st-century development.”
