The Pittsfield Master Plan Committee meets at the Pittsfield Town Hall at intermittent meeting dates throughout the year on an as-needed basis. Notices of meeting dates are posted at the Town Hall prior to each meeting.


Vision of the Future

The overall goal of the town, it's "vision of the future," is balanced, moderate growth to strengthen the downtown and increase the economic base, while maintaining the rural character of the town. Critical to the implementation of this vision is both commitment and sufficient funding to enact the recommendations of the plan. Sufficient funding is necessary to meeting this vision, and wherever possible outside grants should be pursued to supplement the town's budget.


What is a Master Plan?

A Master Plan is a document that provides a sense of direction for the future by translating a community's wishes with regard to growth, development and land use into specific objectives, standards and recommendations for action. The recommendations contained in a master plan are applied to public as well as private endeavors.


A master plan assesses current and future needs of the town by examining all those factors that are impacted by growth and development (transportation, housing, schools, community services and facilities, recreation, natural and historic resources, land use and economic development) and making specific recommendations for each.

Planning History in Pittsfield

In the 1960's the Pittsfield Board of Selectmen and the town's Planning Board, conscious of the fact that the future of Pittsfield depended on bringing about a positive change in direction of the existing situation, determined that a plan should be established to guide Pittsfield's growth. As a result, the town obtained a federal planning grant (commonly referred to as a 701 grant available through section of the Housing Act of 1954), and with assistance from Hans Klunder Associates, Planning Consultants of Hanover, New Hampshire, a two-year study of the town was completed and adopted by the Planning Board in 1964.


The 1964 Master Plan was a twenty-year plan with recommendations dealing with land use and zoning, economic activity, community facilities, streets and traffic, and schools. The possibility of change and expansion was pointed out with the notation that the degree of improvement would depend on how well the town was prepared for the anticipated growth, whatever form that development would take. The plan referred to Pittsfield as primarily a residential community with relatively few manufacturing opportunities. It observed, also, an ebb in the retail business. The plan  indicated a hope that the then-pending improvement of the route 28 access combined with a recommendation future expansion of Pittsfield's retail center, among other factors, would revitalize Pittsfield's sagging economic base.


In the late seventies, the town again took a look at it's future and began a revision of the Master Plan in preparation for an effort to enact a zoning ordinance. The revision was not a comprehensive one, focusing only on land use and zoning district categories. It was not until 1988 that the voters of Pittsfield successfully enacted a zoning ordinance.


Again in 1994, the Planning Board recognized the need to revise it's planning documents and it began a revision of the Master Plan. Goals and objectives were prepared and adopted in 1994 by the Board as the first step in this process. However, because of the Board's increasing workload, it was not able to continue the process. As a result in early 1997, the Board formed a Master Plan Committee composed of Board members and interested citizens who began the process anew.
