Wrentham Master Plan 2030 Phase I Approved
Phase I of Wrentham’s Master Plan has been approved by the Board of Selectmen and Planning Board.
Phase I of the plan includes the Community Vision, Housing chapter and Economic Development chapter. Phase II will now commence, and will focus on Transportation, as well as Open Space and Recreation.
Phase III is scheduled to begin this winter and will include Cultural and Historical Resources, Town Services and Facilities, Sustainability and Energy, Land Use and Zoning, and Implementation.
Phases II and III will follow a similar process as Phase I, identifying key challenges and opportunities based on data analysis, mapping and community engagement through surveys and public forums, as well as developing Goals and Strategies to guide the town’s efforts.
Once completed, the Wrentham Master Plan 2030 document will guide the town’s investments, policies and priorities for the next 10 years.
“We would like to thank the thousands of Wrentham residents who have been involved in the planning process of the Master Plan since early summer 2020,” Town Administrator Kevin Sweet said in a statement. “Through surveys, public forums, focus groups and meetings we feel that this plan will be representative of our community, and we encourage residents to continue to make their voices heard so that this plan can be as useful and impactful as possible as we move into the future.”
Phase I includes several important pieces of information about the town of Wrentham as identified through the planning phase, including a list of the town’s greatest strengths, what residents feel would most improve their quality of life, existing economic conditions and housing conditions, growth trends, a history of the Master Plan and more.
