Dear West Brookfield resident,

The Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC) has been selected by the West Brookfield Master Plan Committee (MPC) to develop West Brookfield’s first Master Plan. The project began in January and will conclude in October with a plan that lays out a vision for a community’s future over the next ten years, or more, and creates a roadmap to get there through goals and actions. The main topics of a Master Plan include:

   1.  Land Use
   2.  Population and Housing
   3.  Economic Development
   4.  Natural and Cultural Resources
   5.  Open Space and Recreation
   6.  Transportation and Circulation
   7.  Town Services and Facilities

As you may be aware, we held an initial community event on March 22, 2017. The event was well attended and helped to provide background information about the project, as well as resident focus groups to help identify initial strengths and challenges in Town. Check out our Facebook page and the Master Plan website to see the presentation and photographs!


A critical part of the Master Plan process is to collect the opinions, thoughts, and input on a range of different subjects from as many West Brookfield stakeholders as possible.

The more residents and business owners that take the time to complete the questions; the more we can create goals and strategies that will enhance West Brookfield’s strengths and help to overcome its challenges. We cannot do this process without you! 

The entire survey should take ~30 minutes. Please take this survey and help share the importance of taking it with others.

We understand that your time is valuable. If you are unable to finish the entire survey, please fill out as much as you can and submit. Surveys must be completed by Wednesday, May 31, 2017. Completed paper copies can be dropped off at the following locations:

  • Town Hall
  • Merriam-Gilbert Public Library (24-hour drop-off available! )
  • Senior Center
  • U.S. Post Office
  • Country Corner Store
