How will the 2004 Canton Master Plan be updated?

The overall update process will involve:

  1. Updating baseline data, facts, and figures to understand where we are, who we are, and where we’ve been.
  2. Hearing from the community to create a shared community vision of Canton’s future to understand where we want to go.
  3. Identifying the most important issues that will shape how we reach our vision.
  4. Developing specific policies and actions to overcome barriers, strengthen assets, and build capacity to meet the community’s vision.

The Canton Master Plan is a community-driven plan and public participation is critical to its success. Everyone is invited to participate and have their voices heard through an open and transparent process. The Town and the Master Plan Steering Committee (See “Who is on the Canton Master Plan Steering Committee (MPSC)  and what are their responsibilities?”) will use different ways to reach out to the public to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to talk about the issues that are important to them (See “How do I get involved?”). We want to hear from you what should be preserved and enhanced in our town, and what can and should change over time to meet evolving needs and improve the quality of life for residents.
