Proposal of Taintor and Associates, Inc. The Methuen Master Plan

Executive

Executive SummaryThe City of Methuen’s Master Plan, to be completed during 2006-2007, will addressall functional elements of a typical master plan (as outlined in M.G.L. Ch. 81D ), butmay focus on key areas of particular concern to the City: residential growthmanagement, enhancement of its non-residential tax base, and traffic mitigation andtransportation alternatives. The Plan will need to incorporate a broad-based processfor citizen involvement, including input from Methuen natives and newcomers alike;and it will be action-oriented, including a detailed implementation program.As with all master plans, this planning effort will take place within a context of otherdiscussions, activities and trends affecting the community’s future. In Methuen’scase, these include some significant challenges and opportunities. The City’s concernabout the scale and density of new residential developments, its efforts to promoteeconomic development, and its need to address the increasing cost of municipalservices must be considered throughout the planning process. Methuen is in a goodposition to capitalize on its location, level of services, and pleasant neighborhoods toattract desirable new growth, enhancing the City as its land use policies make themost of opportunities in decades to come.Based upon our experience and in response to the City’s Request for Proposals, weherein propose a process that comprises roughly five tasks over the course of elevenmonths: inventory and analysis, community visioning/identification of key planningissues, draft master plan, community review of draft plan, and adoption of the finalmaster plan. Our approach is designed to build consensus for the plan by presentingdraft documents which are further refined via a number of arenas for public review.Finally, the Master Plan should contain specific implementation recommendations inan action agenda. The Master Plan is a time for a new look at the City’s regulatoryframework (e.g. zoning & subdivision regulations) and presents an opportunity toconsider new and innovative mechanisms to encourage appropriate and sustainabledevelopment. In addition, the implementation plan may include action items forother regulatory boards and officials, and will explore reasonable timeframes forcompletion.Methuen Master PlanTaintor & Associates, Inc.Proposal for Consulting Services Page 1
