A municipal master plan serves as the Town's primary policy statement on future development in Burlington. The process will involve the assessment of current trends relative to the environment, natural and cultural resources, population, demographics, housing stock and economic opportunity. The legal basis for master planning in Massachusetts comes from Chapter 41, Section 81D of the General Laws of Massachusetts. This act requires communities to create Master Plans to “provide a basis for decision making regarding the long term physical development of the Municipality.” The law requires the plan to be consistent in its policies, forecasts, and standards. It also outlines a series of elements that must be addressed in the plan.
