Cherryfield Comprehensive Plan Update

Cherryfield's current Comprehensive Plan was written in 2003. Since then, much has changed and a great deal more information is available about Cherryfield. This includes the 2010 Census, the 2015 American Community Survey, a record of civic investments, new and different businesses, and all kinds of digital (no longer just paper) maps of natural resources.

The Comprehensive Plan Update pulls together information on a wide-range of community issues to assess trends and establish town policies.

The Planning Board and several expert community members will actively meet to update the Comprehensive Plan over the course of the next 12 months.
