Updated:  October 14, 2020

The Yarmouth Community Visioning project is well under way as we look towards the future we want for Yarmouth.  The Planning Board has devised a modified COVID-19 Visioning Process and Implementation Schedule that includes a Survey and three (3) Virtual Community Workshops this fall. 

The first step is a Virtual Kick-off/Informational Meeting to explain the overall Visioning process, why we’re doing this, and the various ways people can participate. 

Ø November 4th @ 5:30 PM – Kick Off/Informational Virtual Meeting
Register in advance at:  https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_HnhlWJ7FQOuK02_5hxh1_A

This virtual meeting will also be livestreamed to the Yarmouth YouTube Channel and posted on the Town website on the Community Visioning webpage.

The Planning Board will soon be launching a Visioning Survey along with an initial series of Community Workshops set for:

Ø November 18th @ 5:30 PM – Virtual Workshop #1

Ø December 7th @ 9 AM – Virtual Workshop #2

Ø December 15th @ 2 PM – Virtual Workshop #3

More information on registering for the Workshops and the launch of the Survey will be available at the Kick-Off/Informational Meeting and on this webpage as we finalize the details.

To better inform our residents on a variety of topics about our community, Data Summary Sheets have been compile on such matters as Community Services, Local Economy, Housing, Community Design, Open Space, Climate Resiliency, Infrastructure and Water Resources.  These summaries provide general topic related data and notable trends; identify existing programs and projects; and outline projects and initiatives the Town is currently working on.  At the end of each Data Summary Sheet is a list of tickler ideas of things to think about in preparation for attending a Workshop or completing the Survey. 

To stay informed on this important project, please visit our Visioning Webpage and sign up for regular updates via e-mail to have access to the latest information, including Workshop details and access to Surveys.  Opportunities for public participation throughout the entire visioning process are highlighted in the Public Participation Schedule.  The Planning Board has also developed a robust Public Participation/ Engagement Plan.

We encourage everyone to get involved with the Visioning process and participate in the upcoming Surveys or Workshops.  Public participation is crucial to making this Visioning project a success.
