How can I get involved?

We want to hear from as many residents, business owners, workers, and visitors of Canton as possible. Public events will be scheduled throughout the update process, either as formal public workshops or informal drop-in “open houses.” We’ll also be asking the public to respond to surveys, asking questions about what in Canton should be protected, what should be strengthened, and what should be transformed to meet the needs of current residents and those of future generations.


Here’s how to stay informed:

  • Sign up for the Planning Department News Flashes via the Town’s Notify Me service. You’ll receive emails about project updates, public event announcements, and links to topics of interest related to the development of a community master plan.
  • Look for event announcements and other updates on the Town of Canton and Canton Planning Department Facebook and Twitter feeds.
  • Visit the Canton Master Plan website regularly. The website is the central hub for project updates, public input opportunities, resources, project contacts, and other information related to the Canton Master Plan update process.
  • Participate in public events sponsored by the Town and the MPSC. These are opportunities to talk with your neighbors about the issues important to you and how you see Canton’s future. Upcoming events can be found on the Canton Master Plan website.
  • Attend MPSC meetings. Meeting agendas are posted on the Town’s website. Listen in and offer your personal experiences to the MPSC on the spectrum of issues and topics covered by the Master Plan. Upcoming MPSC meeting schedules can be on the Town of Canton meeting calendar.
