The Master Plan

What will Montgomery look like in ten years? In twenty years? Today’s planning decisions will shape our future. In-depth planning reports are posted below. All residents are encouraged to become aware of and involved in your town’s planning process. Montgomery has experienced tremendous growth in the past few decades.* Much effort has gone into master planning to preserve Montgomery’s scenic vistas, farms, fields, and woodlands while providing the amenities residents need such as roads, schools, utilities, fire and police services for our town’s 8,000 plus households and businesses. As our township has grown, the challenge lies in preventing development sprawl and preserving rural character while addressing traffic and allowing sensible growth that helps to balance our tax base.
