The Master Plan was approved by the Planning Board and Board of Selectmen on October 10, 2013. That document can be found above and is entitled "Master Plan Volume 1 and Master Plan Volume 2".

Overview
What is a Master Plan?  A Master Plan guides  a community's growth and development according to the community's economic, environmental, and social objectives.  It provides the basis for guidance, coordination and accountability to future decision makers regarding the long term land use and development of the community.  A Master Plan should look at least 20 years into the future, and should be revisited at least every five years.  The existing Master Plan was written in the mid 1990's and adopted in 1997.  Since that time, a great deal has changed in Great Barrington.

What is the role of the Master Plan Committee?  The Planning Board established the Master Plan Committee to work with the Town Planner as well as other Town staff, boards, commissions, consultants, regional agencies, and the citizens of Great Barrington, to formulate drafts of a new Master Plan to update and replace the 1997 Master Plan.  The MPC will ensure that it involves citizens in shaping the vision, goals, and strategies in the Master Plan.

What is the schedule?  The entire process is scheduled to take about two years, ending in  2013. Contact the Town Planner for more information.
