Master Plan

After three years of diligent work by the Planning Board, the Master Plan Steering Committee, the Master Plan Topic Groups, and the citizenry of the Town, Lancaster adopted its first Master Plan in 40 years in December 2007. This was a monumental effort for the Town, and the Planning Director and Planning Board have created a five-year roll-out plan for its implementation that will amend our zoning bylaws and create new programs in the areas of land use, economic development, housing, transportation, open space and natural resources, recreation, and historic preservation. It is the vision of the Town to treat the Master Plan as a working document and a blueprint for planning over the next several years.
