Open Space and Recreation Plan Update

The Town of Shutesbury wants to know what you think!  We are working with the Franklin Regional Council of Governments to update our Open Space and Recreation Plan — a tool through which our Town plans for the future of its conservation and recreation resources and becomes eligible for certain conservation and recreation grants.

A public draft of the Plan will be posted on this page starting December 9th.

You are invited to the virtual Open Space and Recreation Public Forum on Thursday, December 16th, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., where we will discuss the Plan, survey results, and the Plan’s goals, objectives, and action plan.

You will be sent a Zoom link for the Forum once you've registered.

The public comment period runs from December 9th through December 23rd.  Please submit feedback to
