The Stoughton Master Plan is asking for public input to develop a shared community vision and to help set goals that will take us confidently into the future.

The Town held a Visioning Forum on October 15th that brought together over 110 residents and business owners to share ideas about Stoughton’s future. The purpose of this survey is to allow more community members to share their ideas and opinions. Responses will be collected until January 20th and will be used to develop the Vision Report. Your voice is important to our future. Please take the opportunity to be heard.
