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.

[2009 Master Plan]

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.
