Welcome to the Town of Raynham's Master Planning Process!


In the fall of 2019, the Town of Raynham began creating a new Master Plan that will help guide the town moving forward. To complete this work, we need to hear from you - Raynham residents, business owners, and workforce members. 

Your input is the essential ingredient – combined with current, accurate data – that builds Raynham’s Master Plan!               



    Welcome to the Raynham Website!

A Master Plan can be many things. It is a narrative document describing the story of Raynham’s history and the experience of living in town today. It is a technical document that considers population trends and land use changes over time in order to chart where we are now and where these trends may be taking us tomorrow. It is a policy document that lays out an optimal vision for Raynham and articulates the strategies, actions, and decisions that will assist the town in arriving at that future. In short, it is a long-range plan that helps guide the town, that builds trust by making transparent decisions, and that bases those decisions on accurate information and public input.  For more detail, please see Elements of a Master Plan



This web page is the online hub of the Master Plan process. We keep this site up to date with new information and events - please check in regularly and view the project sub-pages:

Elements of a Master Plan

According to Massachusetts General Law, a Master Plan has nine required "elements" (or "chapters"). We post drafts of each element here as they are created, and welcome comments on any section.
