Whitneyville Comprehensive Plan

The Town of Whitneyville has completed its first Comprehensive Plan in 30 years. Whitneyville last developed a Comprehensive Plan in 1980. There have been a lot of changes since then, both in Whitneyville and in Maine law as it relates to land use and municipal comprehensive plans.

The Comprehensive Plan pulls together information on a wide-range of community issues to assess trends and establish town policies over a 10- to 15-year period. The current Comprehensive Plan was completed in September, 2011 and submitted to the State Planning Office for formal review under the Growth Management Act. It was found consistent with the Growth Management Act on on October 17th, 2011 and adopted by town vote in 2012. The final Comprehensive Plan and the review documents received from the State Planning Office are available below.
