Developing a Vision and Goals for Medfield's Future

Purpose: To invite the Medfield community to come together and generate ideas that will create a shared vision and goals for Medfield’s future. This in turn will be used as the foundation for an action plan that will outline the steps necessary to attain this vision

Where we are in the process: The process starts with this "Community Conversation" (in person at the 10/20 forum and online via this survey) where input from residents, business leaders, and town officials is solicited. This stakeholder input will result in a Vision and Goals document which will form the foundation for the plan. The TWMP Committee and consultant team are also doing an inventory of existing resources which will result in an Inventory and Assessment of Existing Conditions of the Town’s resources (second piece). The third and final piece of the process is the creation of an "Implementation Plan" to guide town officials over then next 10-20 years.

This survey is an opportunity for you to participate in this process. It is estimated that it will take you less than 4 minutes to respond to the questions.

Master Plan Topic Areas include: Population & Housing, Economic Development, Historic & Cultural Resources, Natural Resources, Open Space & Recreation, Transportation & Circulation, Community Services, Facilities & Utilities, and Land Use & Zoning. Sustainability & Resilience will also to be addressed throughout the document.

In addition to the required topic areas the TWMP will address some key community priorities such as: open space preservation, improvement of the Downtown, diversification in residential development, increase in commercial tax base, preservation of historic character, and reuse of the former State Hospital campus.

It is the intention of the TWMPC to set up an inclusive and transparent process and provide multiple opportunities throughout the year-long process to keep informed, provide input, identify critical issues, define shared values & goals, establish priorities for the future, and ultimately, build support for implementation of the plan.

The Children’s Librarian and Teen Librarian will be working with Medfield youth on visioning exercises.
