Comprehensive Planning Committee
The Comprehensive Plan, created in 2000, is a visionary document that helps guide decisions in areas such as land use, economic development and transportation. It is not a law or regulation but simply a guidepost. We are currently undertaking a rewrite of the document to reflect the town’s hopes for Westwood’s future.
This effort began in October 2010; it led by the Planning Board and includes a Steering Committee comprised of representatives of elected and appointed boards, as well as sub-committees considering specific areas within the plan. Residents were encouraged to participate in the initial visioning workshop in October 2010, and have since then been invited to attend all meetings and to serve on sub-committees.
In January the Westwood Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee invited residents to participate in an online survey to share their opinions about Westwood. Questions included what they like best and least about living here, and what changes they would like to see in the future – or not see – regarding issues such as land use, business development, housing, transportation, recreation and open space.
SURVEY RESULTS ARE NOW AVAILABLE!
