Town and regional officials are inviting the public to a special Open House in two weeks. This one is to gather input on what our Town’s future should look like:

The Master Plan Committee is seeking input from Town Residents on their vision of Southborough in 10, 20, 30 years and beyond. To this end the Master Plan Committee is inviting Southborough Residents to a Community Visioning Forum on November 7, 2019 at the Trottier Middle School cafeteria from 6:30 PM -8:30 PM.

Some of you may be familiar with the “Master Plan”. But for those who don’t understand what it represents, Planning Board member Meme Lutrell explains:

The Master Plan is long term vision document that provides the basis for the Town’s future decision making. That Helps guide the Town’s growth and change while preserving its natural and cultural resources and maintaining its public facilities and services. The Planning Board created a Master Plan Committee, made up of various stakeholders to review the 2008 Master Plan and make a recommendation for revisions, changes, and updates.

Master Plan Visioning Open HouseAt the Open House residents/community members are invited to provide their feedback on the vision:

Join us to learn, discuss, and provide your input on important issues facing the Town of Southborough, such as housing, open space, natural and historic resources, recreation and trails, economic development, green initiatives, and transportation. This is a great opportunity to reflect on the last decade in Southborough and help decide what the next decade should look like.

The invitation is extended by both the Master Plan Committee and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council.

Don’t forget, this isn’t the only upcoming forum on the future of Southborough. The Economic Development Committee is holding a forum next week to answer questions about their vision. That one focuses on the committee’s Downtown Initiative. (Click here to read about that.)
