The Planning Board digested and consolidated the significant amount of public comment collected this past fall/winter for the Community Visioning Project, and have launched a 2nd Visioning Survey to see if we heard clearly what the community had to say about Yarmouth’s future.  This survey will run through July 31, 2021 and can be accessed at the link below:   

Second Visioning Survey


To date, we have almost 600 responses to this simple survey which will tell us the relative importance of each vision goal and help identify anything we may have missed.  

Please take the 2nd Survey and let your voice be heard!

The 2nd Survey is based on the work done by the Planning Board over the past several months to condense the valuable public comments into a draft Vision Statement showcasing Yarmouth as a great place to Live, Work, Play and Learn.  The Board then identified general Goals that focus on what we want to preserve, promote or provide for in our community to reach this shared Vision.  Your feedback from the 2nd Survey will be used to develop a draft Vision Plan which will go out for public comment in the fall with the hopes of adopting the plan before the end of the year.  

We encourage everyone to stay involved with the Visioning process as public participation is crucial to making this project a success.  Feel free to send any questions about the Visioning Project to visioning@yarmouth.ma.us
