Master Plan

Worcester is drafting its first city-wide master plan since 1987. The final document will include existing conditions, identification of issues and opportunities, and recommended actions pertaining to land use and zoning, housing, economic development, transportation and accessibility, public infrastructure, and more. Public feedback and community engagement will be critical to the creation of the master plan.
