 Plan of Conservation and Development
     The Westbrook Planning Commission is in the process of updating the 1990 Plan of Conservation and Development. An effort in 1998 led to meaningful changes in land use policy but did not result in a formal plan. An update of the Plan is now required every 10 years in order for the Town to be eligible for discretionary state funding. Work on the Plan began in August 2008 with a public workshop to identify issues of importance to the community. The Commission is working with the planning consulting firm, Planimetrics, Inc. to prepare the Plan. In November 2008, a Steering Committee was formed to work directly with the consultant to formulate the Plan. The Steering Committee is comprised of a diverse group of community members and representatives from various boards and commissions. In addition to work with the Steering Committee, several public workshops are planned to involve residents and property owners at each stage of the process. This important Plan will establish a common vision for the future of Westbrook and recommend policies that will help attain that vision. The Plan must be completed by 2010.

   Upon completion of an analysis of Existing Conditions and Trends and a Build-out Analysis, the Planning themes that will be addressed include:

Conservation Strategies (what we want to protect or preserve)
  • Natural Resources
  • Open Space / Parks
  • Historic Resources
  • Community Character
  • Coastal Resources

  • Development Strategies (how we want to guide growth or development)
  • Overall Community Structure / Neighborhoods
  • Town Center
  • Residential Development / Housing Needs
  • Business Development

  • Infrastructure Strategies (what services and facilities we need to enhance the community and support desired growth)
  • Community Facilities
  • Vehicular Transportation
  • Other Transportation
  • Utility Infrastructure

  •    Westbrook residents are encouraged to participate in the planning process by providing input at public workshops and by giving feedback through this website. All draft documents will be posted on the website for comment.
    It is the goal of the Planning Commission to create a plan that unites and inspires the community to implement it.
