Oakland Comprehensive Plan
In the fall of 2017, the Town of Oakland embarked upon the process of updating its comprehensive plan. A “CompPlan” is intended to guide the growth of a community, but it is more than just a document – it encompasses a community’s shared vision for its future. We invite Oakland residents, business owners, and property owners to join us in envisioning Oakland’s tomorrow.
•A comprehensive, long-range plan intended to guide the growth and development of a community.
•Includes: economic development, housing, recreation and open space, transportation, land use, and community facilities, and the community’s goals and objectives of these elements.
Any Oakland resident, business owner, or property owner is welcome to lend their input to the CompPlan process and share their vision for the Town.
Ways to get involved:
