More Information

The Comprehensive Plan is arguably the most influential long-term visioning documents for any municipality. As the Town's "blueprint" for the next 10 to 20 years, it provides policy guidance for a host of elements including directing where future residential and commercial development will occur. Despite the effort and countless details necessary to develop such an encompassing Plan, many residents find it rewarding to be an integral player in a collaborative effort to shape the future of their Town.

The Gray Town Council has identified a new Comprehensive Plan as one of their top priorities. The existing Plan is 15+ years old and was written before the Rt. 26 By-pass around the Village.

 The entire Comprehensive Plan process can take up to 2 years to complete but the Town fully intends to complete it within 18 months.
