The purpose of the Strategic Planning Working Group is to provide community leaders and Ipswich residents with a variety of future planning scenarios and infrastructure investment information. The strategic plan will allow managers and residents to better appreciate our future planning needs, understand the costs, benefits, and interactions of various planning scenarios, and make thoughtful and effective decisions.  With a goal to develop a cost projection and investment model for key infrastructure developments in Ipswich, MA. Utilizing the model, propose for Tri-Board discussion 5-10 different scenarios that project future capital planning and community-based infrastructure development within the Town of Ipswich for the next 10-15 years.
