This project, prepared for the Town of Spencer, describes the steps taken and recommended by the group in order to preserve Spencer's rural character as growth occurs in central Massachusetts. It assessed the impact of affordable housing, cost of community services analysis, and a priority list of parcels which are the most important to protect against growth. Working from Spencer's Master Plan, literature, town meetings, and our own analysis of the Town of Spencer, the project group was able to lay out for the town administrators the steps needed in order to protect the town's rural image.
