Manchester 2020 is the Town’s Plan of Conservation and Development.  Updated every 10 years, Manchester 2020 was adopted in 2012 by the Planning and Zoning Commission.  It is a policy guide for the Town’s boards and commissions and contains the community’s aspirations, goals, and recommended actions to achieve those goals.  The Planning and Zoning Commission and the Town are now working on carrying out the recommendations of Manchester 2020.
