Future plans for West Concord

Now that Article 38: West Concord Interim Planning Overlay District has passed at Town Meeting and hiring a consultant to complete a Master Plan for West Concord Village is nearing completion, the West Concord Task Force would like to inform those who are interested of the group’s next steps.

The task force will hold a public forum on design guidelines on June 16 at 7 p.m. at the Thoreau Elementary School auditorium. The West Concord Task Force, the Planning Board and the Planning Department are working together to develop design guidelines. The organizations would like as much public feedback on the draft as possible before finalizing the document.

A draft and explanation of the design guidelines are posted at the task force's Yahoo group site, or at the task force’s page on the town Web site.

The next West Concord Task Force meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 27, at the Concord Municipal Light Plant, 1175 Elm St., at 7.30 p.m. To access the building at this hour enter through the side entrance. The task force welcomes your feedback at its public forum. Residents can also send feedback to the town’s Planning Department at mrasmussen@concordma.gov or Marcia Rasmussen, Director of Planning, 141 Keyes Road, First Floor, Concord, MA 01742.
