Master Plan Steering Committee

The Town of Hopedale is collaborating with the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC) to create a Master Plan. This plan, that we would like you to help author, lays out a vision for the community’s future over the next ten years and a roadmap to get there. A Master Plan aims to take a comprehensive look at the elements that shape a community including: Land Use, Population and Housing, Economic Development, Natural and Cultural Resources, Open Space and Recreation, Transportation and Circulation and Town Services and Facilities. If you have any questions regarding the Master Plan Steering Committee or the Master Plan, please reach out to Jim Abbruzzese, Chair of the Master Plan Steering Committee at
