The Nahant Zoning By-laws was rewritten by the Planning Board, and adopted by Town Meeting on April 30, 1990. The first notice of the public hearing on the revised by-law was published on March 5, 1990.

The revised by-law became effective at the time of town meeting vote on April 30; some portions relating to nonconforming structures were effectively retroactive to March 5. The Attorney General approved the revised by-law on August 13, 1990.
