Welcome to the Hanover 300 Website!

This website is the central portal for everything you need to know about Hanover 300, including how to get involved with the process. Throughout 2016, the Town of Hanover will work with local residents, workers and business owners to create a comprehensive town wide plan that will guide future decisions that impact Hanover’s quality of life, economic opportunity and prosperity, and its environment.

Hanover 300 is being developed by the Town of Hanover with the assistance of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and under the direction of the Master Plan Committee and the Town Planner. When completed in late 2017, the Town of Hanover’s third centennial, the plan will set a vision for the community and a 10-year strategic framework to achieve that vision through goals, policies and strategies on topics relating to housing, economic development, historic and cultural resources, open space and recreation, transportation, public facilities and services, and more. (For more on the Master Plan, click here.)

Your participation by your family, friends, and neighbors in this important town wide planning process is essential to ensuring that Hanover 300 reflects the community’s vision and ideas for Hanover’s future. Please join us in this process by reviewing this website, signing up for plan updates, attending public forums, responding to surveys, providing feedback on draft documents, and more.

Thank you and welcome to the process!
