Watertown has experienced a remarkable period of growth and change that’s projected to continue in the coming years. By 2031, the city is expected to add more than 6,000 jobs, mostly in the research and development sectors. A positive impact of this economic development is that it will increase the non-residential tax base. Still, it’s created significant changes, increasing the demand for housing of all types (including affordable housing), and influencing local transportation patterns.
In response, the city is in the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan, a document designed to guide future decision-making and respond to emerging challenges and opportunities. In this meeting, Steve Magoon, the city’s Director of Community Development and Planning, and Senior Planner Larry Field will share highlights of the just-released Comprehensive Plan draft, which will ultimately be presented to the Planning Board and City Council for consideration this spring.
