When will the actions in the plan take place?

The plan actions will be taken throughout the next 20 years. Goals have been set for short, mid and long-term within that time. Prioritization of actions was based on thoughtful analysis performed by the SHRA and a paid consultant, in consultation with Town officials.  Although the goals for the plan were set, the timing will depend on many factors including but not limited to, availability of funding, private investment, and changing circumstances.  As the plan is implemented, goals will constantly be evaluated based on cost of the action and potential revenue leveraged by the action. For example:

  • A grant may be awarded that would apply to infrastructure costs spanning multiple areas that may have been projected as short-term and long-term goals.
  • As market conditions improve, a private developer may invest in a redevelopment project in a longer-term area and certain actions such as parcel aggregation, or sidewalk improvements, may need to be taken to support that project.
