The Community Plan will function as the official comprehensive plan for the Town of Highlands and will be a tool used for guiding the growth, redevelopment, preservation, public improvements and other priorities of the town. The plan will contain a refined vision for the Town and goals, policies and strategies to manage growth, reinforce our identity and character and provide high quality public facilities and services for all citizens.

Through a public process we will develop a shared vision and goals for the future. The last Land Use Plan update was completed in 2005, and much has changed! This update will provide an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to look back and review progress that has been made. Those involved will then be able to think forward to weigh in on the priorities and vision for our Town. 

How Does this Relate to Me?

The Community Plan impacts many facets of life:  where you live, work and play, how you get around, the character of our Town, conservation and environmental protection efforts, parks, housing, future businesses and more! A good plan requires a lot of public feedback from the community. Visit the "Get Involved" page now and look for opportunities to have a share.

Who is Involved?

In addition to numerous public engagement opportunities, there is a core project team that will be  leading the Highlands Community Plan effort. This project team includes Highlands town staff, consultants, and a Steering Committee. Periodically throughout the process, the project team will be engaging with community stakeholders, and Town governing bodies and commissions.
