Citywide Comprehensive Plan
What is the Citywide Comprehensive Plan?
The Citywide Comprehensive Plan is a community-driven set of goals and an action plan for the next decade. Over the next year, the citywide planning process will engage the community in a range of topics including Land Use, Housing, Economic Development, Transportation & Mobility, Natural and Cultural Resources, Open Space & Recreation, Services & Facilities
As a result of this process, the Comprehensive Plan will articulate a shared vision for a stronger, more equitable, and resilient New Bedford. Moreover, the resulting document will provide an actionable implementation framework, which includes policies and practices for creating a healthier community, maintaining a clean, sustainable environment, providing housing to a range of incomes, increasing opportunities for use of open space, improving transportation access, and offering quality public facilities.
