What is a Master Plan?

A document that describes a comprehensive long term plan intended to manage and guide growth and development of a community. 


Why does Randolph need a Master Plan?

Past growth has been inconsistent with the goals and vision of the community.  The Master Plan will help the town work toward a shared vision for the future. It will help ensure limited land resources are used wisely and the values of our community influence town policy and decisions.


What are the overall goals of the Randolph Master Plan?

The Master Plan seeks to establish a framework that will help Randolph achieve a successful future.

Specific goals are outlined in the Master Plan to address current and future needs for:

  • Land Use
  • Public Facilities and Open Space
