Canton Junction Area Planning

The Town recently worked with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council to facilitate a community-driven process to plan for the future of the area around Canton Junction Commuter Rail Station. The objective of the study was to determine what uses could be viable and desirable given current market conditions in Canton and the region, while being sensitive to the long-range vision for the Town and neighborhood. This process lead to the development of a vision for the area and the development of strategies to achieve that vision.

This effort is under the understanding that current land owners have no immediate plans to sell or significantly redevelop their property. However, the findings have been included in the updated town-wide Master Plan (expected to be adopted March 2020). The final report is now available.
