Get involved in shaping the future of Stamford!

“Preserve and enhance what’s best about Stamford: its social diversity, its scenic qualities, its appealing neighborhoods and its strong downtown.” – 2002 Master Plan Citywide Policies Report

Welcome to the Stamford Master Plan website! Stamford’s Master Plan is a document that serves as a working blueprint for local decision making on a wide variety of topics including land use, zoning, economic development, housing, neighborhoods, the environment, sustainability, transportation, infrastructure and community services. Per State of Connecticut statute, the Master Plan must be updated every ten years.

The City of Stamford’s Planning Board and its consultant team led by BFJ Planning are now working to update Stamford’s 2002 Master Plan to reflect the development activity and demographic changes that have occurred over the past decade and set out a vision for the year 2025. The 2002 Master Plan  presented a renewed vision for Stamford, prepared by the City and its residents. It is now time to reflect back on that plan and look forward to the future. Where have we been over the course of the past decade and where are we going? Where do we want to be ten years from today?

How Can I Get Involved?

There are a variety of ways to get involved in the Master Planning process including public workshops, community meetings and focus groups. Become a fan on Facebook and visit this website often to get the latest information on public meetings and work-in-progress and provide us with your feedback on draft plan documents.

Please join us for a citywide workshop on November 13th at the 7pm at the Ferguson Library. We will be reviewing a set of draft plan policies that reflect the thoughts and ideas that we heard during our neighborhood meeting series this fall. Save the Date! We look forward to seeing you there.
