Brookline Comprehensive Plan

Planning Process Study Committee

On December 1, 2021, Town Meeting voted a resolution asking the Select Board to "in consultation with the Director of Planning and Community Development, appoint a Planning Process Study Committee to work with the Planning Department and other Town staff to develop a work program, budget, and scope for an inclusive, community-driven planning and zoning reform process." In the Fall of 2022, the Planning Process Study Committee was formed.

The Committee voted to approve the Comprehensive Plan Request for Proposals on August 22nd, 2023. The Planning Board and Select Board will also review the document before it is posted to receive proposals. Once a consultant is selected, a public kick-off event will be scheduled for the end of 2023. View the Request for Proposal's Comprehensive Plan Process Flowchart.
