The Town of Mansfield is in the process of updating its 2016 Open Space and Recreation Plan.

It is important for residents to take part in planning for the protection of remaining open space, the preservation of our cultural and historical assets and the development of recreational opportunities. The updated Open Space and Recreation Plan will enable us to evaluate our progress since 2016 and develop new strategies to address the town’s changing needs. Having an up-to-date plan also makes Mansfield eligible for state funding for land acquisition, preservation and recreation projects.

For the purposes of this survey, open space is defined as “public and privately owned undeveloped lands that are important for a variety of reasons, including recreation, agriculture, forestry, scenic qualities or other qualities that contribute to the overall character of the town.”

Your input is extremely important to us as we plan to meet the town’s needs. Please take a few minutes to answer the survey questions below. The deadline for completing the Open Space and Recreation Plan survey is October 29, 2023.

Paper copies of the survey are available at the Mansfield Town Hall welcome desk and at the Mansfield Public Library during regular business hours. Completed paper surveys may be dropped off at Town Hall or the Library, or mailed to Mansfield Town Hall, ATTN: Katelyn Gonyer (Conservation Dept), 6 Park Row, Mansfield, MA 02048.

If you have any questions or would like assistance completing the survey, you may reach out to Danica Belknap (SRPEDD) at or 508-824-1367 (ext. 222).

Thank you for participating!
