2019 Town Plan

   2019 TP Col

The Town Plan is the long-term (20+ year) plan for the community that, while primarily focusing on land use, provides guidance for the community’s goals with respect to natural and cultural resources, parks and recreation, energy, transportation and other utilities, economic development and municipal services. The plan has been updated many times over the years, most recently in 2014.

We need your help to create a vision for the Town of Colchester for the next 20 years. How and where will we grow? What issues do we need to address? What will our community look and feel like in the future? Join us as we explore these questions and many more over the next year. Sign up for our Thoughts on Thursday for updates on the 2019 Town Plan!

To learn more about the Town Plan, click through the links on the left for full details. We have begun drafting the Town Plan and are excited to be using a new format taken from our 2012 Heritage Plan.  In this new format, topics will be grouped into three categories: Environment, Community, and Economy.  Here are the first draft sections (still subject to change)!
