Why is the Comprehensive Plan being updated?

The 2005 Comprehensive Plan provides a vision up to year 2020, which is just around the corner. As Bethlehem continues to grow, we want to establish our vision for the town over the next 15 to 20 years.

The Update is anticipated to focus more deeply into several issue areas, including transportation and traffic, open space conservation, the character of residential neighborhoods, economic development, and environmental sustainability.
