Newbury planners to discuss 2017 Master Plan update

The Newbury Planning Board will hold a work session to discuss and review information concerning the town’s 2017 Master Plan update on Tues., May 2, 2017, at the Town Office Building, 937 Route 103, Newbury. The board will also discuss proposed amendments to Site Plan and Subdivision Regulations.

The town is updating its 2007 master plan. The public input process began with a community survey and two public forums in 2016. The first forum, Envision Newbury 2027, was held in June 2016. (A program slide shown.) The second forum, conducted in August 2016, focused on “future land use.”  The planning board will hold a public hearing to present the plan once completed.

Friends of Mount Sunapee advocates for the protection of Mount Sunapee State Park for its fundamental public values; conservation of the Sunapee highlands and its watersheds; and preservation of the unique character and natural beauty of the rural communities in the mountain’s shadow.

Our goal is to maintain our region’s essential qualities of clean air and water, large forest tracts and open lands, wildlife, and their habitats, and the traditional methods of enjoying these resources. We advocate for local land use measures, regional planning practices, and land protection initiatives that safeguard livable and healthy communities.
