About the Project
The South Acton Vision & Action Plan is an effort to establish a community vision for South Acton Village and make zoning and design recommendations that can best achieve the vision. Led by the Town of Acton and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), this work continues the establishment of key center plans as recommended in the Acton 2020 Master Plan.
This project coincides with new regulations from the State of Massachusetts (Section 3A of the Zoning Act) about how communities with MBTA stations zone for multifamily housing. As such, the South Acton Vision & Action Plan will also look at how Acton could comply with the regulations within the context of the community’s vision.
This project is funded through the Commonwealth’s Community One Stop for Growth and MAPC’s District Local Technical Assistance (DLTA).
