A Citywide Long-Range Plan

The City of Worcester is developing a citywide long-range plan (aka Master Plan) in accordance with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 41 section 81D. Worcester Now | Next does not replace other planning efforts, but instead will build upon and coordinate such planning efforts by establishing a common planning framework. The final Worcester Now | Next plan will help guide decisions regarding policies, regulations, programs, infrastructure and other aspects related to the physical development of the community. It will establish an ongoing program of long-range planning moving forward, and the plan itself will be updated on a regular basis to reflect current conditions, priorities and policies to guide the city's physical development over time.
