The key outcomes of the project will be a citywide, long-range/generational plan that articulates a vision and goals for the continuing development of the City, establishes a framework for ongoing and more detailed planning efforts, and prioritizes and coordinates city actions over the short- mid- and long-term. As a basis, the plan shall include a comprehensive assessment of Westfield today, with presentation and discussion of applicable historic demographic and socio-economic trends, covering, at a minimum, the topic areas specified by the General Laws. The City anticipates pursing a future zoning overhaul based on the Master Plan effort.
