The 10-month collaborative process to update Leland’s Master Plan concluded Thursday evening, August 25, with the Town Council’s unanimous vote for adoption.

The final draft of Leland’s updated Master Plan will be considered by Town Council on August 25. Everyone’s welcome to attend the meeting at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers, Leland Town Hall, 102 Town Hall Drive in Leland.
The document under consideration is the result of an intensive collaboration between citizens, business people, Town staff and the PlaceMakers consulting team chosen to facilitate the process. So everyone deserves to take a bow for participating through each phase of developing and tweaking the final draft Plan update.
Informed by community feedback provided in April, a second draft of Leland’s Master Plan is now completed and ready for review. Please join us, June 14, at 6:00 p.m. for a joint workshop in which we’ll present the latest draft and clarify any questions or concerns from the Planning Board, Council, and general public.
The meeting will be held at Town Hall. Those unable to attend can review the draft document here.
Bottom line: Over the next 15 years, Leland is expected to experience strong growth that can either complicate growth planning or provide the energy for approaches far more likely to serve the Town’s ambitions.
Leland’s four-day collaborative workshop kicked off Tuesday, November 10, with public meetings to help the PlaceMakers consulting team better understand community priorities for updating the town’s 2009 Master Plan.
“A Master Plan is not a legal document in the same sense as a zoning code or other ordinances,” PlaceMakers project manager Susan Henderson told community members Tuesday evening. “It’s a document intended to guide project priorities and capital investment.”
We hope you’re planning to join us during our collaborative workshop to update the 2009 Leland Master Plan. It begins on Tuesday, November 10, and runs through Friday, November 13.
For a look at opportunities to participate, check out the full schedule here.
Over the four days, there are six public meetings designed to move from a general discussion about planning goals towards key elements in the updated Master Plan. By Friday’s concluding presentation, we’ll be able to review and discuss what a draft Plan might look like.
Beginning on Tuesday, November 10, we’ll revisit the 2009 Leland Master Plan (14mb .pdf) and ask ourselves some key questions. For instance:
Has the experience of the last half-decade given us a clearer view of what’s ahead for our region? Anything different about Leland’s aspirations? Our capacities?
