Project Lunenburg CCP

The Comprehensive Community Plan (CCP) is the 40-year strategic plan for the Town of Lunenburg. The Town engaged its citizens over an 18-month process to define the community's goals and aspirations, and to chart a course that will have community efforts moving in the same direction, contributing to a shared vision for the future. Project Lunenburg was completed with the partnership of Upland Planning + Design and approved by Lunenburg Town Council in 2020.

For more details and information, including status reporting and Project Lunenburg community engagement documents, please visit the Comprehensive Community Plan page.
