Feb. 28 Public Forum
The Cohasset Master Plan Committee and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council held a public forum on February 28, 2018 to gather input from community members on their visions for the future of the town. Attendees had the opportunity to contribute to the plan’s vision statement and indicate places in town where they believed improvements and attention is needed.
During the meeting, attendees interacted with five maps asking where housing and commercial development should be targeted, how Cohasset should be preparing for climate change and sea level rise, where to create options for safe walking and biking, what improvements they would make to Cohasset Harbor and the surrounding area, and what improvements should be makde to teh Route 3A Corridor.
The meeting kicked off Phase II of the Master Plan.
Planners will record and analyze the information collected at the meeting to present at later meetings. There will be two more public forums before a draft plan is created: in April, one on neighborhoods and natural/historic/cultural resources, and in June, one on economic development, energy, public facilities, and transportation. The plan will be drafted during the Summer and Fall and there will be another public forum in the late fall to present and gather feedback on the draft.
