Plaistow residents urged to pay attention to master plan
August saw a joint meeting of the town's board and commission members looking at a number of long-term issues, including revamping Main Street and land use development. The planning process for possible extension of the MBTA commuter rail also kicked off with a public input session at town hall.
As the planning for Plaistow's future continues, Town Manager Sean Fitzgerald said it's important for town leaders and residents to keep an eye on the town's master plan.
"I've read the master plan a number of times and I've listened to the discussion of the boards, and I wonder if that master plan is consistent with the thoughts of many board and commission members and folks in the public," said Fitzgerald. "It's important that folks take that time and look at (the plan) frequently. It is a reflection of what the town hopes to accomplish."
With just over half of the town's land undeveloped, he said the master plan can help the town decide what land it might want to set aside for conservation or recreational purposes.
A copy of the master plan is available on the town's website at www.plaistow.com/Pages/PlaistowNH_Planning/Master .
