Marion Master Plan Forum

The Town of Marion is updating its Master Plan (MP), a document that will guide the Town’s evolution through the coming decade and beyond. Community input is essential for producing a valuable, constructive MP. All interested in having a “voice” should plan to attend the Public Forum on Saturday, August 1 at 9:00 am in the Marion Music Hall. The discussion will be on housing, economic development, and land use.

The MP addresses housing and business development, infrastructure needs, natural resource protection, and public service plans. Massachusetts requires that municipalities update their MP every 8-10 years and makes it is a prerequisite to obtain state funding for community development. Marion last updated its MP in 2006.

The Planning Board is leading the MP process, assisted by professionals from the Southeast Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD) and a recently approved Town Planner. In addition, three advisory committees, composed of selected community members and representatives from town boards, will provide further insight on specific topics. Please mark your calendar today for this important Public Forum. Your engagement, input, and participation will ensure Marion’s MP will protect our Town’s special charm while meeting the future needs of our residents. For more information, visit
