On May 19, 2021, Ashland's boards voted unanimously to adopt the updated HPP after a seven-month planning process that involved a comprehensive data analysis and public outreach for input on the plan recommendations. With an active HPP approved by the Commonwealth, Ashland will have greater control over new housing development and reap greater community benefits. The plan also helps Ashland retain a best practice that makes the town eligible to receive state grants. The final Plan, as well as videos of the public forums that were held during the update process, are linked below. Click here to access Ashland's story map, a visual exploration of the Plan.
