In producing a Comprehensive Masterplan, a written vision of the future must be formulated to provide not only direction to the community, but to the entire planning process. Without a clear listing of accepted Goals and Objectives, the Plan will not focus on the issues most important to the citizens of the Town of Eden, and the plan will lack direction.
The following link demonstrates a list of goals and objectives in which were generated through the public participation process that began in September of 1999. The process began with just listening to the concerns, desires, and likes and dislikes of the people attending the first public forums. These issues were reviewed & supplemented from the previous master plan process of (1992-1998). A new listing of "issues" was re-presented to the public in an October 1999 meeting, in which additional comments were received. After input from the Town Board and Citizens, goals & objectives were formulated out of these issues and minor amendments were made.
This plan has identified eight major Goals and objectives of the community: Rural Character preservation, Eden Center Redevelopment, Economic Development, Agricultural Development & Farmland Preservation, Open Space Conservation, Environmental Protection, Growth Management, & Transportation System Management.
