Master Plan Update , June 2019
Manchester’s master planning efforts have spanned four years culminating in Planning Board approval of the Plan as submitted by the Master Plan Committee with minor text and organizational edits. Since that approval in February, a Planning Board Subcommittee has been working with the Town Planner to finalize the Plan’s text and will next work on formatting the Plan for publication and developing a Master Plan Summary to be widely distributed.
As the Plan is being finalized, implementation of the Plan’s recommendations have begun with several important initiatives.
As part of the implementation process, the Board of Selectmen and Planning Board will be developing a communications strategy for updating residents on initiatives on a regular basis. The goal is to provide a comprehensive list of the Plan’s Recommendations with a continually updated status.
