The town of Derry is taking its first steps to legalize sports betting by outlining which town zones it would be permitted in should voters approve it in the spring.

On Tuesday, the town council will be reviewing a first read of an amendment to the town’s zoning ordinance.

As written currently, the General Commercial, General Commercial IV and Industrial IV districts will include sports wagering as a permitted use.

Town Administrator Dave Caron said Derry has a permissive use zoning ordinance, meaning zones need to list all uses permitted, rather than list prohibited uses.
