Cabot Town Plan

A Town Plan identifies goals and strategies for maintaining, improving, and developing a livable community. Although Cabot is not required to adopt a Town Plan, doing so affords it a voice in the way the town grows and develops. An approved Town Plan enables the citizens of Cabot to have a legal say over both private and State land use decisions in the Town. State statutes grant the plan great weight in determining whether development projects subject to Act 250 are approved, and the conditions applied to approval.
