Medford Comprehensive Plan
The Office of Community Development in Medford, Massachusetts is undertaking a public planning process to prepare a Comprehensive Master Plan for the City. Karp Strategies, in collaboration with project lead Agency Landscape + Planning, was selected to develop a ten-year vision for the City with implementation guidance. With specific areas of focus in housing and economic development, Karp Strategies is collaborating with the project team to document a clear vision for the City, connect regulation and investment to that vision, and create a roadmap for action. Through a series of technical reviews, data analysis, stakeholder interviews, and case study research, Karp Strategies will develop equitable economic development strategies. These action-oriented tactics will build on existing planning efforts, acknowledge Medford’s unique position, and look to the future.
