The Planning Board has begun work on creating a town Master Plan. We have communicated in the past our intention to spearhead the effort to develop a plan to guide future development in town over the next 10-20 years. Several issues are key: attracting revenue producing business, maintaining or increasing income diversity, development of infrastructure to support small business, environmental and historical protection, infrastructure, and other related issues. This effort will be done in coordination with Leverett residents and other town boards as we refine goals and strategies.
We have retained an outside consultant experienced in municipal Master Plan development to guide us through the process. The cost for the consultant is funded by a grant of $39,000 from MA Department of Housing and Economic Development. It covers the first of two stages of the plan. The process will be guided by the Planning Board with help from a Master Plan Working Group to be formed. This group will do most of the work and will be staffed by residents from town committees and boards as well as interested town residents. The goal is to fully engage the larger Leverett community so that the finished product reflects the voice of the town.
