Planning Board Meeting Discussing Master Plan
Final Master Plan
What is a Master Plan?
A Master Plan is a “blueprint” for a municipality, outlining a vision for the future and community-established principles for balanced economic, social, physical, environmental, and fiscal planning. The document is not a law or regulations, but provides guidance to elected officials and stakeholders when they make land use, zoning, and capital investment decisions. Master Plans are grounded in community engagement, with additional input through review of existing plans and studies, socioeconomic analysis, and planning best practices.
