The Master Plan Committee is a subcommittee of the Planning Board.
State law (RSA 674:1-4) requires the Planning Board to develop and, from time to time, update a plan containing its recommendations regarding the future growth and development of the community. The guiding principles for the plan are to be based on the desires of citizens. The plan provides guidance for the work of the Planning Board and other town officials for the next ten years or so.
Alton's current Master Plan was adopted in 2007 and can be found here:
In 2020 Alton voters approved funds to hire a professional planning consultant to assist the Planning Board with the update of the town's Master Plan. The Master Plan Committee was appointed to oversee the process of finding and hiring the consultant, and to work with the consultant to collect the public input necessary to guide the plan update.
