Why do we need a Comprehensive Plan?

There are many benefits of a Comprehensive Plan. A Comprehensive Plan:

  • Helps establish a consensus on community's vision for the future, which helps guide decisions on how to regulate growth and development (Zoning must be in accordance with a Comprehensive Plan)
  • Establishes goals and objectives that guide policies, projects and practices
  • Communicates the Town's preferences and priorities about capital projects to County, State and Federal governmental agencies

The Town's last comprehensive planning effort was in 2005. A new Comprehensive Plan will allow us to look at the changes over the past 15 years and look ahead to the future.
