Boylston Master Plan

Roadmap for our future

Thank you to all residents who took the time to complete the second Master Plan survey! It is now closed.

This survey asked the community to read the draft Vision Statement and Goals for each of the 8 chapters and provide feedback. Your participation has helped shape the future of Boylston!

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!
