Townsend Master Plan Committee

 

June 29, 2019: The Townsend Master Plan Committee is well on our way to writing a draft master plan for approval by the Planning Board. Our board is committed to writing an evidence-based master plan, where the evidence behind all recommendations is fully documented in the master plan itself. This evidence will not be the personal opinions of the master plan members, but instead will be 1) feedback from townspeople through open meetings and the survey, 2) feedback from town officials and board and committee members, 3) external studies of Townsend undertaken by third parties, and 4) high quality general research covering topics of interest to Townsend.

All Townsend specific documents that will form the basis of the evidence behind this master plan will be posted on this web page as they become available.

  1. Feedback from Townsend residents
    1. MRPC summary of public meetings held in May and June 2018
    2. Public survey taken April - May 2019 (coming soon)
  2. Feedback from town officials and board and committee members (coming soon)
  3. External studies of Townsend undertaken by third parties
    1. Economic study by FXM Associates in association with Barrett Consulting Group (posted when completed)
    2. A housing study being undertaken with the help of an District Local Technical Assistance grant to support the Townsend Housing Authority and the master plan (posted when completed)
