    Wellesley to host open house on upcoming town ‘unified plan’

    Wellesley officials will host a Nov. 29 open house on a proposed “unified plan” intended to guide decision-making for the town.

    The town’s proposal is intended to combine a comprehensive plan for development in Wellesley with a strategic framework for the town’s government, according to the project’s website.

    The plan is being developed by a 47-member steering committee, consisting of town officials and residents, working in conjunction with town staff and project consultants.


    “At the foundation of the plan are townwide values and a set of goals for the future based on community dialogue and discussion,” according to the project’s website.

    The open house will be held Wednesday, Nov. 29, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Wellesley Town Hall’s Great Hall. The session will cover issues facing the town, including housing, transportation, economic development, open space preservation, and zoning, according to a flier.

    A final draf is expected to be ready for approval at the annual Town Meeting in the spring.
