Thank You!! Thank you to the 500 residents that responded to the latest Master Plan survey designed to gauge resident preferences on taxing and funding options, public facility improvement priorities, land use, housing and economic development opportunities.
Your thoughts and ideas will help the Town develop strategies for working better together to overcome challenges and to strengthen our community while preserving its character and authenticity. A stronger Manchester has a more diverse tax base, well maintained and managed public infrastructure, facilities, programs and environmental resources, a vibrant downtown focused on serving Manchester residents, greater diversity in housing styles and price range, safe and accessible streets and sidewalks, and civic engagement at the core of municipal governance.
In brief the Master Plan survey results show:
In response to the final survey question, 212 respondents offered a wide range of opinions, ideas, cautions, challenges and hopes. The most often repeated was a caution or encouragement to preserve the small town coastal character that is so clearly valued by all Manchester residents. We hear you!
Thank you for your time, energy and valuable directives that will help set the course for Manchester’s future.
