Fall Town Meeting unanimously approved the 2017 Marion Master Plan on Monday, October 23, 2017!  Thank you to all the Marion residents, business-owners, and officials who contributed to this plan.  Implementation efforts are already well underway.

The Planning Board, with the help of the regional planning agency, Southern Regional Planning and Economic Development (SRPEDD) consulting group, prepared the Master Plan based on extensive public input through community forums and workshops since 2014. The Master Plan is the long-term vision document that helps guide the community’s growth and change, preserve its natural and cultural resources, and maintain public facilities and services. The Master Plan provides a basis for decision-making regarding the future of the Town.

Hard copies of the final draft Master Plan are available at the Planning Board office, the Town Clerk’s office, the Elizabeth Taber Library, and the Police Station. An electronic copy is available on the Town of Marion webpage, below in the document library, or by clicking the following links - 2017 Marion Master Plan and Appendix.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Gil Hilario, Town Planner by email ghilario@marionma.gov or call 508-748-3513.
