The following is from the Stoughton Master Plan Committee:

The Master Plan Committee wishes to thank all the residents and businesses in the Town for their participation in the Master Plan Public Forum that was held on October 15. Your participation and opinions were invaluable to the development of Phase 1 of the Master Plan.  

As we continue our work on Phase 1, your continued involvement is crucial to the success of our project and we are now asking you to participate in a Focus Group of your choice.  

The purpose of a focus group is to share ideas among participants in the identification of key issues, goals and strategies. The topics of the Focus Groups are as follows:  Open Space/Recreation, Transportation, Town Image, Public Infrastructure, Downtown, Schools, Energy & Sustainability and Healthy Community.  

If you are interested in joining a group, please contact Noreen O’Toole, Town Planner, by November 30th  at notoole@stoughton-ma.gov or call 781-232-9201.

I've yet to visit the Town's "dump" where I or anyone around me has been asked to show an ID confirming residency. I know for a fact the recycling center is used by people of other towns. Why is this being allowed?
