Cohasset Master Plan Survey

The Cohasset Planning Board is in the process of updating our Town Master Plan. Your perspective on the kinds of challenges Cohasset will face over the next 10 years helps to determine what we address in our updated Master Plan.
The following survey is a great opportunity for citizens to guide and advise the Master Plan Scope of Work. It is designed to collect and collate local knowledge and wisdom regarding critical issues Cohasset must identify now, in order to plan for the future.
Please be frank and candid in your comments. This is a 100% anonymous survey. If you wish to identify yourself, you may do so in the comment section at the end of the survey.
The Cohasset Planning Board and other committed town residents thank you for participating in our Master Plan updating process.

Cohasset is a nine square mile coastal town just twenty-five miles from Boston and is home to about 7,000 residents who reside in a setting of historical colonial homes and spectacular ocean vistas.  Many of the residents make the daily commute to work by car, commuter boat from the adjoining town of Hingham, or the commuter train line located right in town.  Route 3A bisects the town which provides prime locations for a multitude of large and small businesses alike.  Currently there are four shopping plazas operating within the town which provide all the basic needs that any resident or visitor would look for.  
 Cohasset's central village lies around a picturesque and spacious common with a small pond on the southern end named Meeting House Pond.  The Common is surrounded by historical buildings, homes, and churches.  The village also includes specialty shops, quality restaurants, the colonial First Parish Meeting House, and St. Stephens Church with its 51 bell carillon that has offered Sunday concerts since 1924.  Cohasset has active Community and Arts Centers, three historical museums, the South Shore Music Circus, and a Swim Club for all ages.  There are three swimming beaches, and recreational parks and trails that run through Wompatuck State Park, Whitney Woods Reservation, Wheelwright Park, and Turkey Hill Park.   
 Along the shore line of Cohasset Harbor are facilities for dining, sailing, boating, and a replica of the famous Minot's light. The Cohasset Public School System is highly rated and many of the residents involve themselves in the many community activities which provide a stable foundation for the future growth of Cohasset.
