One of the key considerations in development of a master plan is land use. In the next few weeks, the Planning Board and its consultant team will be working on land use issues leading to the upcoming Thursday, March 26 public forum and workshop examining goals and priorities, including future land use priorities.
The Weekly Poll is seeking your input on land use – both land that is “undeveloped” and land that could be redeveloped for different uses. The competing interests for land includes economic growth for jobs and taxes; water supply protection; residential growth for an increasing population that is living in smaller and smaller households; conservation land for habitat protection, pollution control, and recreation; public facilities and schools. Alternative land use needs often seem to be at odds. The Weekly Poll wants to know your priorities for land use in Foxborough. So, click here to take the Weekly Poll.
All responses must be submitted by next Monday, February 16th by midnight. You can respond online here. Or you, can drop your response in one of the Weekly Poll boxes at Foxborough Town Hall, the Senior Center, the Boyden Library, the Foxboro Reporter, the Foxborough Planning Board office, or the Foxborough Public Safety Building at 8 Chestnut Street. You can also respond on line at www.FoxboroughMasterPlan.com.
