What is a Master Plan?

• a shared vision that is developed through an inclusive community process

• a road map (with targets & metrics) for the town to prioritize future community needs

• an integrated approach that creates dialogue across interest groups

• a comprehensive action plan that addresses both short-term needs and long-term goals

Why is it important?

• Creates shared goals and priorities to help coordinate the efforts of boards and committees

• Supports Board of Selectmen, FinCom & School Committee efforts to plan for expenditures over multiple years and prioritize investments

• Creates a citizens forum to discuss and explore new ideas with town-wide participation
