The project logo 2020 Mason Master Plan Survey

The Town of Mason is updating the Master Plan, last published in 2007, in collaboration with the Nashua Regional Planning Commission (NRPC).  The purpose of this survey is to gather input from the Mason Community to guide the Mason Planning Board as it rewrites the Master Plan.  The survey includes topics which mirror individual sections of the Master Plan.  Feel free to add your comments in the space provided in each section.  In addition to feedback received from the survey, the Planning Board will conduct public meetings over the coming months for residents who wish to participate in the master planning process.  Thank you for your interest and responses.

 

Note - questions with comment sections give you the opportunity to post comments publicly within the survey for other responders to see, or non-public so just the survey creators can see your comments.  Comments that are posted publicly can be commented on by other survey responders as well.  All answers and comments are contained within the survey and will not be posted on any other platform.
