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

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
