Email today from the Townwide Master Planning Committee (copy at the end below) sharing results of its forum and survey, and I inserted examples of the Committee’s use and promotion of “#medfieldspecialplaces” (including one person’s attempt at doing a selfie) – extra points to anyone knowing whose dog it is, or where the train engine is located.
#medfieldspecialplaces – Straw Hat Park is a great addition to the vibrancy of our downtown – who knew that such a small place could make such a big impact!
Happy New Year and THANK YOU for your participation in the Townwide Master Planning Committee’s “Community Conversation” either in person at the October 20th forum at Blake Middle School or online via the follow-up online survey. Your input will result in a Vision and Goals document which will form the foundation for the master plan. The summary report is HERE and the online survey responses are HERE.
The Townwide Master Planning Committee and consultant team are performing an enumeration of existing resources which will result in an Inventory and Assessment of Existing Conditions of the Town’s resources. We’ll reach back out in advance of the next public meeting (approx. late winter/early spring). Let us know if you have any questions or comments by using THIS form.

From Kevin Ryder –
I wanted to update you on the status of our work with the consultants from Abacus in regard to a new Park & Rec facility.
We will be hosting a PUBLIC INFO SESSION on Monday, Jan 6, 2020 at 6:30pm at the Pfaff. The goal of this session is to update the public on the process and solicit information from the public about what they want to see in a new facility.
I have attached a flyer to this email. Could you pass the word along to the Selectmen?
Any questions, please let me know

5 Minute Townwide Master Plan Visioning Survey
Where we are in the process: The process starts with this “Community Conversation” (in person at the 10/20 forum and online via this survey) where input from residents, business leaders, and town officials is solicited. This stakeholder input will result in a Vision and Goals document which will form the foundation for the plan. The TWMP Committee and consultant team are also doing an inventory of existing resources which will result in an Inventory and Assessment of Existing Conditions of the Town’s resources (second piece). The third and final piece of the process is the creation of an “Implementation Plan” to guide town officials over then next 10-20 years.
This survey is an opportunity for you to participate in this process. It is estimated that it will take you less than 5 minutes to respond to the questions.
