The Town of Newfield is in the process of updating our 1981 Comprehensive Plan.
Newfield residents recently adopted a new Inventory Section of the Comprehensive Plan in 2019.
The next and final stage of the updating process is to design and write goals to guide the
Town's  planning efforts and policies for the next decade or two.

What is a Comprehensive Plan for Newfield?

The comprehensive plan, is a document that presents a vision for the future, with goals and objectives for activities that affect the local government. These goals could include guidance for writing or amending  land use ordinances, expenditure of public funds, and cooperative efforts among the Town’s boards and committees when addressing issues of pressing concern.

Here are a few of the goals being considered at this time:
History & Community Character Goals, Policies and Strategies
Population & Demographics Goals, Policies & Strategies
Local Economy Goals, Policies and Strategies
Housing Goals, Policies & Strategies
Transportation Goals, Policies & Strategies
Public Facilities and Service Goals, Policies & Strategies
Natural Resources Goals, Policies & Strategies
Land Use Goals, Policies & Strategies

The Planning Board is looking for community members
that would like to participate in designing and finalizing these goals.
Please contact the town office for more information or
drop by at any of the Planning Board meetings on
the 1st Wednesday of the month at 7 pm at the Town Hall.
