New Action Plan for Conservation & Development Released for Comment

How can we attract and retain young people and families to our town? How can we further improve upon the high quality of life we offer to residents of all ages? How do we balance our need to conserve land, protect water quality, and maintain the rural character of our region while also meeting our needs for housing and jobs? The new draft Regional Plan of Conservation and Development lays out a strategic list of actions that we can take as a town, together with our regional partners, to address these challenges over the next ten years.  To see a copy of the Plan visit  A public hearing to solicit input on the draft Plan will be held on September 19th, 2017.
