The Future of Our Neighborhood

Northwest Mansfield Vision and Strategy Plan

About the Plan

Northwest Mansfield is evolving. Recent changes such as the closure of the Goodwin Elementary School, mixed-use and multifamily development activity, and the gradual conversion of single-family homes to rental units, disrupting the owner occupancy-rental balance, have prompted the need for the Town to engage the community in a discussion about the future of this area.

The Northwest Mansfield Vision and Strategy Plan will establish a roadmap to assist in managing growth and guide development in this corner of Mansfield. More specifically, the project will result in a plan for Northwest Mansfield that will be used to:

  • Assist the Town with updating its zoning regulations for the area
  • Improve pedestrian and bicyclist access and safety
  • Improve traffic operations and safety
  • Protect open space areas and environmental resources
