The Town’s Comprehensive Plan is a plan for the short-term and long-term growth and development of Severance. It is designed to be used by Town officials, staff, and citizens as a set of policies to guide community development decisions, to assist with community facility budgeting, and as a tool to guide future development of residential, commercial, employment, cultural and educational opportunities for the residents of Severance.
For a comprehensive plan to function as an effective advisory tool, it is necessary to have the capability to respond to changing conditions such as increased population and demand for public services, housing supply, legislative policies, technological development, economic circumstances and other issues our citizens believe to be relevant. The purpose of the Severance Comprehensive Plan is to provide a road map for the future of the community and preserve our Town’s quality of life, rural atmosphere, and small town feel.
September, 2019: The Town of Severance is updating the Comprehensive Plan starting this month. We welcome feedback from residents and have scheduled multiple open houses to give you the opportunity to be a part of this important process. Information about the timeline and a list of proposed dates and times can be found below.
