Welcome to the Chelmsford Master Plan Website.  This site has been put together by the Northern Middlesex Council of Governments in an effort to provide information to the public and local officials regarding the plan update.

What is the project?


     The Town of Chelmsford has entered into agreement with the Northern Middlesex Council of Governments to ascertain services for a 2009 Master Plan Update.
     The master plan is intended to serve as a guide for Town development over the next 10 years or longer.  It establishes goals and policies for the community and makes recommendations aimed at accomplishing these goals and policies in the areas of land use, housing, economic development, natural and cultural resources, open space and recreation, and transportation.
