Project Overview

The Town of Sudbury is pleased to announce it has kicked off the update process for its Master Plan! Our current plan was adopted in 2001. Since then, we have been successfully implementing many of its recommendations, however, baseline data within the plan needs to be updated to reflect current conditions and circumstances in and around Sudbury. New development and initiatives need to be part of the Master Plan as well as factored into Sudbury’s future.

 

The Master Plan is a Blueprint to Achieve Our Vision for Sudbury

As the Town approaches its 400th year in 2039, the outer edge of this Master Plan timeline, this is an opportunity to reflect on where we’ve been, where we are, where we want to be in the future, and how we get there.

 

This is Your Chance

The Master Plan is a document written by the community and expresses what makes Sudbury a unique and special place to live and work. Every voice needs to be heard to understand what the community values.

 

The Master Plan Is Not Just a Plan; It is an Important Tool Based on Community Values

Local decision makers use it to guide public and private investments that can impact development and redevelopment initiatives. It is used to protect important historical and natural resources, and foster economic prosperity based on sustainability principles.


 

Timeline and Update Process

The update process is expected to continue through the spring of 2020.
