Before the Cohasset Planning Board started the Master Planning process, they implemented Phase I of the Master Plan, a townwide visioning process intended to identify town sentiment regarding the future of Cohasset. Citizen input determined what issues should be highlighted for study and analysis during the larger and more detailed Master Plan process. Phase I gathered public input through a forum and survey to provide a picture of how the town might wish to see itself in 10 years.
The Town of Cohasset and Metropolitan Area Planning Council sponsored an Open House on Saturday, March 5, 2016 for a day of learning, visioning, and planning, beginning with an educational bus tour around Cohasset followed by a public forum. The Planning Board, members from the Board of Selectmen, and municipal staff worked with MAPC staff to gather citizen input on the planning process. Attendees provided input on Cohasset’s strengths, challenges, opportunities, priorities, and visual preferences for the development of Cohasset.
