The goal of the Route One Corridor Study is to develop strategies to encourage the type of development the Town and community would like to see along the corridor to meet the goals of the 2020-2040 Comprehensive Community Plan. This study will guide town departments, the Planning Board, the Economic Development Commission (EDC), and state agencies, and encourage private investment. The Study involves the following tasks:

  • Review existing conditions on the Corridor

  • Analyze market potential and challenges 

  • Gather community observations, thoughts, and ideas

  • Recommend changes to development regulations and other actions that will spur economic investment, create a cohesive sense of place, allow for a greater mix of uses, and improve public safety

These recommendations will be reviewed, revised, and prioritized into an action plan for implementation.
