Mansfield Master Plan Update
Mansfield, MA

Pare was retained by the Town of Mansfield to update their 1996 Town Master Plan. The goal for the project was to efficiently utilize the existing Master Plan, relevant recent Town and regional studies, data updates, and public input to create a user-friendly plan or handbook for Town boards, staff, residents, and business people. The Plan focused on trends that have emerged in the past decade and clearly outlines future direction for the Town. The Plan provides a policy framework for decision-making by Town boards and commissions. Pare worked closely with the Master Plan Committee and the Mansfield Planning Department throughout the update process.

The update process consisted of three phases which were conducted during a six-month project schedule:

Phase 1 incorporated public outreach, to help define how Mansfield has changed or evolved during the previous eleven-year period.

Phase 2 prepared revised elements for each section of the Master Plan Update.  Key elements included Land Use, Circulation/Transportation, and Economic Development.

Phase 3 compiled all of the efforts from Phases 1 and 2 into a Master Plan.
