Boylston Master Plan

Roadmap for our future

The second Master Plan survey is now open until October 31st!

The Boylston Master Plan Steering Committee, with assistance from CMRPC, has drafted a Vision Statement plus Goals for each of the 8 Master Plan chapters. This survey asks the community to read these and provide feedback. Please consider spending 10-15 minutes to complete this survey. This is an exciting opportunity to participate in shaping the future of Boylston! 

Paper copies are available for pick-up and drop-off at Town Hall and the Boylston Public Library. 


As a component of the Master Plan process, a Housing Production Plan was developed to determine the most appropriate paths for creating more affordable and diverse housing options in Boylston. Currently, only 1.5% of Boylston's housing stock qualifies as "affordable", which is well-below the State's 10% mandate under M.G.L. Chapter 40B. The Housing Production Plan will be in effect through June 2026. 

The Housing Production Plan has been approved by DHCD!
