The Northfield Planning Commission has finalized and approved its draft of the revised Northfield Town Plan.  The Town Select Board has held two (2) public hearings (01/14/20 & 02/11/20) and there will be additional opportunities for public comment before final approval.  Please click the link below if you would like to download the plan.  Hardcopies also are available for review at the Town Clerk's Office (51 South Main Street) and the Brown Public Library (93 South Main Street). 

Please click here for potential changes to the draft Town Plan based on feedback received at the recent public hearings.  These and other possible revisions will be discussed at the next Select Board regular meeting on March 10, 2020.
