2024 Surry Comprehensive Plan

Surry’s 2024 Comprehensive Plan (Draft)

Surry’s 2024 Comprehensive Plan is intended to express the vision of residents for the Town’s future over the next decade, and to propose strategies to achieve that vision.
In 2022, Surry’s Select Board established a Comprehensive Plan Committee (CPC) composed of residents who had been nominated by a variety of active community committees and organizations.

The predominant opinion of residents is that the Town must balance “attainable” residential growth, as well as compatible commercial development with preservation of the existing rural beauty and small-town atmosphere of Surry.  Residents recognize the need to address pressing concerns such as climate change impacts while controlling property tax increases.

While the Plan recommends goals and specific strategies for the Town, it is not legally binding.  If approved by the voters in November, the “responsible” organizations shown will determine a timeframe for implementation of the strategies. It is possible that some strategies will be modified for a number of reasons. Select Board approval is required for implementation of some strategies.  Where those strategies recommend additions or changes to the Surry Code of Ordinances (SCO), the Planning Board and/or an Ordinance Committee will develop appropriate language to be voted on by the Town’s legislative body.

Surry’s Select Board has expressed interest in holding annual reviews of progress toward achieving the strategies shown.
The CPC hopes the strategies will support the Town’s efforts to obtain grant funding to tackle some of the major issues.
