Over the next 2 years, Plainville will create a new Comprehensive Plan, also called a Town Master Plan, that will help guide the town moving forward. To complete this work, we need to hear from you - Plainville's residents, business owners, and workforce members.
What a Comprehensive Plan Is
A Comprehensive Plan, also called a community Master Plan, is a narrative document describing the story of Plainville's history and the experience of living in town today. It is a policy document that lays out an optimal vision for Plainville and articulates the strategies, actions, and decisions that will assist the town in arriving at that future. In short, it is a long-range plan that helps guide the town, that builds trust by making transparent decisions, and bases those decisions on accurate information and public input.
The Town is working with Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD) to develop its next community Master Plan. SRPEDD is a public, non-profit agency that serves 27 communities in southeastern MA. The project will take place from August 2022 to roughly December 2023. Our role is to facilitate a proactive and transparent civic engagement process that gathers and integrates your views on community needs and aspirations.
This project is 100% funded by grants, as follows:
- $50,000 from DLTA funding obtained through SRPEDD
- $8,000 from Community Assistance hours obtained through SRPEDD
- $75,000 from the Massachusetts Housing Choice Initiative Program
