The Thomaston Comprehensive Plan Committee is asking all town residents and businesses to take part in a survey that will help Thomaston complete the 2017/18 update of its comprehensive plan. The plan, updated every 10 years to keep pace with changes in the town, deals with population, housing, economy and employment, transportation, community services, natural and marine resources, recreation, fiscal capacity and land use. 

The survey will be available starting February 25 at town.thomaston.me.us/public, at Thomaston Public Library (in the Academy Building, 60 Main Street), or at the Town Office (in the Watts Block, 170 Main Street). Copies can be obtained by calling the Town Office at 354-0617. Everyone on the town e-mail list will automatically receive an electronic copy. The survey should be completed and returned as soon as possible. Arrangements for personal visits may be requested.  

In addition, the Comprehensive Plan Committee is planning several public meetings in March to gather infor-mation and to answer questions about the survey. Plans call for a new Facebook page for communication and comments that will be linked to town.thomaston.me.us.
