Implementing the Town’s comprehensive plan depends greatly on the ability of property owners, developers, Town staff, elected officials, and the general public to work together for a common purpose. The “action plan” presented in this document organizes projects and action items important to helping Scarborough meet its economic and quality of life goals while informing future Town investments and key decision-making.
The intent of the action plan is three-fold. First, it provides decision-makers with a blueprint for implementation. Second, clearly defined projects and action items identify public or private investment opportunities that are healthy, sustainable, and achievable. Third, regularly measuring achievements against the action plan (i.e., a “community report card”) provides stakeholders with the opportunity to track progress and hold elected officials accountable for implementing the plan.
The structure of the action plan does not require all projects or action items be completed in sequence. Instead, it promotes flexibility and partnership opportunities between the Town and other stakeholders for implementing the vision in phases, consistent with the pace of growth, emerging regional initiatives, or available funding. The information that follows summarizes key components of the Town’s action plan.Click here for Driving Success.
