Master Plan

McCathran Hall

Washington Grove is an incomparable town—unique in its roots, in its initial land use plan, in the design of its dwellings, in its determination to retain more land in a natural state as forests and parks than developed property, and in the character of its history.

Recognizing that most of the Town’s privately owned parcels are already developed, the goals and objectives of this plan are:

  • Preserve the integrity of the Town and its way of life by providing guidance for protection of the original pattern and character of the community
  • Enhance the Town’s destiny by preserving historic resources through thoughtful adaptation of housing stock and conservation of the natural landscape
  • Protect and improve the economic value of both the privately owned property and the property and resources held in common
  • Create an awareness of Washington Grove in adjacent jurisdictions and support planning requirements throughout the State

The 2009 Master Plan became effective on February 25, 2009.
