Marion’s Master Plan

To the Editor:

It’s going to be the Final Countdown.

On Monday, January 4 at 7:00 pm in the Marion Music Hall, Marion tax payers will have the opportunity to hear a draft summary of the first six chapters of Marion’s Master Plan, provide their invaluable feedback and ask questions. The presentation will address the following Master Plan Elements that were covered in earlier workshops: Land Use | Economic Development | Housing | Transportation | Services & Facilities | Climate Resiliency.

The Planning Board is counting on our town citizens to provide their point of view to help guide Marion into the future! Community input is essential to construct a plan that truly represents what residents want. (By the way, if you are leaving for the winter, don’t hesitate to email your comments to

Assisting us with the planning process are professionals from the Southeast Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD) as well as many of our selected Master Plan Advisors, a group composed of community members and representatives from town boards.

Please mark your calendar TODAY for this important public forum: 7:00 pm in the Music Hall on Monday, January 4. Make a resolution now to help us ensure Marion’s Master Plan will protect our Town’s special charm while meeting the future needs of our residents. For more information, visit
