What is a Comprehensive Plan? The Introduction to the Newcomb Plan defines it as follows: 

"A comprehensive plan is a policy guide that sets forth directions for the future of a community.
It is not a law or regulation. Rather, it is a blueprint to help guide for future planning and
decision making. A town’s comprehensive plan shapes how it functions as a community and
sets forth the community’s collective aspirations, values and vision."

The Plan is a large document that was written over a lengthy period and reflects the general views of the community at the time it was written. The Main Plan can be read in its entirety here

Maps are an important part of the Plan and are included as Appendix. They can be seen here. 

The Comprehensive Plan established Goals and Objectives for the Town and have led to the development of the The Newcomb Smart Growth Hamlet Plan in 2012, which is a Complete Streets Vision for Newcomb's Main Street, Route 28N.
