Welcome to the Lakeville Master Plan Project Page
Lakeville's Master Plan Implementation Committee is working with Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD) to develop this new master plan and when complete, Lakeville 2030 will help guide the future of Lakeville for the next 10 years.
This webpage will be your source for all information about the new Master Plan, options for participation, and notices of upcoming workshops or events. We will keep this site updated as the planning process progresses so please plan on checking back in with us.
What is a Master Plan?
A Master Plan can be many things. It is a narrative that tells the story of Lakeville’s history and the experience of living in town today. It is a technical document that considers population, market, and land use changes in order to chart where we are now a course for tomorrow. It is a policy document that lays out a consensus vision for Lakeville and articulates the strategies and actions that will help the town meet its goals. 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 or this example from a nearby town.
