Water Access Master Plan - Online Survey


The Town of Norton wants to hear from you to improve boating, fishing, and other water-based recreation in Norton’s waterbodies!

The Town of Norton is working with Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD) to develop a Water Access Master Plan to improve Norton’s water access and recreational future. Community input is the essential ingredient that shapes Norton’s Water Access Master Plan!

Please consider participating in a five-minute survey on your recreational preferences and ideas for Norton in an online survey located at: https://bit.ly/norton-wateraccess.

Initiated in November 2020, project staff held open public meetings at water access locations at Juniper Road, Evergreen and Sunset, South Highland Street, Alder Road, the Reservoir Dam, Crane Street (access to the Three Mile River), and Newland Street and Plain Street (access to the Canoe River). At these meetings, Norton residents, mainly water access site abutters and nearby neighbors, discussed how recreational access currently operates at these sites.

Summaries of these site meetings are available on the project website at https://srpedd.org/our-norton-waters.
