Old Posts The Master Plan - Your Input Is Needed!!
For the first time in 40 years, residents will get a chance to weigh in on how the town should look decades from now. The Envision Easton steering committee, along with five working groups, has been dentifying core issues, opportunities and challenges that Easton will face. This comprehensive master plan will replace the existing one developed in April 1971.
“We want it to be a living plan, we don’t want it to gather dust,” said Easton Director of Planning Gary Anderson. “This will hopefully provide a road map in whatever form and provide an opportunity to see what the people really want for the town.”


Within this forum, seen by many of the Easton officials, will be the master plan elements which you will have an opportunity to express your input, ideas, comments and suggestions.
