Economic Strategy Phase I

The first phase of the Project (called "Phase I"), sought to answer two basic questions.

Who are we?

What are the things that define the town and what are the things important to personify and exemplify economic prosperity, and,

What are we ultimately trying to do?

What are the objectives we must achieve to gain and maintain economic prosperity? What forces will help or hinder us in achieving those objectives? What framework is needed to both guide and measure our progress toward a better economic future in a Town that grows smartly while keeping its New England character, maintains a business friendly environment, with high quality of life in a stabilized revenue structure.

The result a Strategic Plan Phase I was presented to the Town Council in May 2007.

The Subcommittee then moved on to Phase II.
