And the survey says ...
Master Plan panel polls Sturbridge residents
November 30, 2009
STURBRIDGE — Although it is still more than a month until the surveys hit Sturbridge mailboxes, participants in the master planning process met Monday, Nov. 30 to discuss content that will and will not be included in resident questionnaires.
The surveys, which residents should look for at the end of January or beginning of February, are one of several methods employed by the Master Plan Steering Committee to collect opinions and suggestions of townspeople for inclusion in the master plan, a long-term plan that, when complete, will outline goals and expectations of the town and courses of action to help obtain those goals.
Concurrently, a survey focused on aspects of economic development will be issued to Sturbridge businesses at the same time.
Monday, chairman of the Planning Board and Master Plan Steering Committee Sandra Gibson-Quigley said the discussion of the surveys was just the first of several before the information complied by the committee members assigned to address the survey is sent to the University of New Hampshire Survey Center for final compilation.
