Master Plan

The Master Plan is a written document that identifies and establishes our community’s goals, objectives, and recommendations in order to guide future growth, development, and/or preservation.  This Master Plan acts as a “guide” or a “blueprint” for the future, summarizes the history of the community, analyzes the present and/or existing conditions, sets forth issues, objectives and actions for forthcoming changes, and outlines an implementation strategy for those actions.  In short, this Master Plan tells us where we have been, where we are now, where we want to be, and how we are going to get there.

In order for the Village of Fort Edward to continue to be socially and economically sustainable, it must respond to changing conditions.  The vitality of the Village requires a strategic vision that weaves together the facts of changing economic conditions, the importance and value of open space, and the needs and desires of a diverse population.
