“Dalton offers breathtaking scenic views, a quaint village with historic church and Town Hall, Forest Lake State Park and old farmhouses surrounded by stonewalls, giving the passerby just a hint of the past.” ~ Dalton Historical Society

Invitation to Join the Master Plan Conversation:

The Dalton Planning Board is in the process of updating the Town’s Master Plan. (Check out the current plan here.)

This fall and winter, the Planning Board will discuss topics of Transportation, Economic Development, Housing, Natural Resources, Energy and Regional Concerns.

The Board invites residents to join a meeting and participate in the discussion of community interests, goals, and needs in each of these areas.

The timeline below shows when the Planning Board is set to discuss each topic so you can plan ahead. Please be aware that this schedule may change, as such we encourage you to check the Planning Board agenda for each meeting [available here].
