Town of Acton, MA
Acton 2020
Comprehensive Community Plan

Acton 2020 is a Town of Acton Committee charged by the Board of Selectman. In Phase III of its work, Acton 2020 is responsible for implementing the recommendations in Acton 2020's Comprehensive Community Plan. The Acton 2020 Comprehensive Community Plan is the primary planning document for the Town of Acton, setting the Town's course for the next 15-20 years.

On April 3, 2012, Town Meeting approved the seven goals and corresponding objectives that comprise the foundation of the Plan. On May 15, 2012, the Planning Board adopted the Plan in accordance with the requirements of MGL Chapter 41, Section 81-D.

Supporting the seven goals and corresponding objectives, the Plan has a list of implementation strategies with 238 corresponding action steps, all contained in a detailed web-based database. Using the Plan as a guide, the Phase III Committee will work with various town committees, boards, and departments to help them implement action items for which these bodies are responsible.

The Phase III Committee will also identify significant parts of the Plan that require more detailed attention and recommend subcommittees, processes, and actions to address these items as needed.

As an advisory committee to the Board of Selectmen, the Acton 2020 Implementation Committee will report to the Board of Selectmen quarterly, or as frequently as the Selectmen may require, on the Committee’s work and progress in implementing the Acton 2020 Comprehensive Community Plan.
