The Town of Meadows is currently in the process of developing its first Municipal Plan and Development Regulations. The Plan will be the roadmap for the community over the next 10 years. The Plan will contain policy and proposal statements regarding economic development, protection of the environment, and the future form and development of land uses. The Regulations will contain the detailed provisions to give effect to the Plan (e.g. zoning). The Town has retained SCP and DB Randell consultants to develop the new Plan.
