Master Plan 101: Elements of the Master Plan

According to Massachusetts General Law, a Master Plan has nine required "elements" (or "chapters"). Drafts of each element will be posted here as they are created. Feel free to comment on any part of the master plan using the comments board, below. 

1. Statement of Goals and Policies:  This element sets out Lakeville's vision for the future. It presents the community's values, its goals, and the patterns of development that will meet these goals.
2. Land Use:  In this section, the community describes its current and future land use patterns, including proposed locations for various activities such as residences, businesses, and recreation.
3. Housing:  The Housing element creates a plan to meet the town's housing needs, which are identified using demographic and market information.
4. Economic Development:  This section identifies policies and strategies for growing the town's economy by building upon local strengths and bringing new and compatible opportunities to Lakeville.
5. Natural and Cultural Resources:  This element is an opportunity for Lakeville to create an inventory of its natural, cultural, and historic resources.
6. Open Space and Recreation:  This section describes existing and future needs for open space and recreational facilities in town.
7. Services and Facilities:  The Services and Facilities element identifies and analyzes existing and anticipated needs for public infrastructure and services.
8. Circulation:  This section provides an inventory of existing and proposed transportation infrastructure and services. 
9. Implementation:  The Implementation section provides a blueprint and schedule for making the master plan a reality.
