A Master Plan is a comprehensive community plan that explores important topics such as land use, natural resources, economic development, housing, transportation, and other themes.


Through the planning process, a town assesses its challenges and opportunities, and collects input from the community. Once written, a Master Plan lays out a vision and strategies for the community to achieve its goals.

Master plans require periodic updates. Issues, challenges, and residents preferences can change a lot in 10-20 years, which is the typical horizon of a master plan. Spencer's current Master Plan was written in 2003.
