Executive Summary CMPlttnr2M0ay18 Executive Summary EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This document represents the culmination of work completed over approximately nine months, from May 2003 to January 2004. The Master Plan presented herein is intended as a tool to guide decision-makers leading Canton’s future. As opportunities for development arise, the Master Plan will provide goals and a vision against which to evaluate proposals. It is a plan that helps to prioritize public investment decisions. The plan is a result of the coordination and compilation of much information, data analysis, public input, town officials’ opinions, demographic and market trend analysis, and professional expertise. The plan was developed in close cooperation and coordination with the Master Plan Steering Committee appointed by the Board of Selectmen and the Planning Board. Finally, the Plan identifies and articulates what-- in the opinion of Canton residents, business owners, town officials and the Consultant Team --should be preserved and enhanced in Canton, and what can and should be changed over time to meet evolving needs and to improve the quality of life for the town’s residents. Vision Statement Canton will be a town that will make us proud. There will be a strong sense of community and most residents will know their neighbors. Residents will be involved in town meetings and town government and will be aware of town plans, and the town will be responsive to residents’ needs. The town will continue to value, maintain, invest in, and promote existing resources. Canton will be a town where development is well managed, and thoughtful development preserves town character, while providing homes for a diversity of residents. There will continue to be a diversity of homes, in terms of size and style, for different economic and lifestyle needs. The downtown will be revitalized with a unified look, and a pedestrian-oriented center will link open space with adequate parking and a diversity of uses. The downtown will enforce existing regulations and have an effective design review board. As a result, the downtown will be beautiful and vibrant with a lot of activity. The business owners will be acknowledged for their work beautifying their spaces, and residents will shop at local businesses. There will be safer street crossings; resident-only parking at the train station, and traffic will have been reduced. There will be enforcement of traffic safety. The town will be easy to travel within, but difficult to cut through, and residents won’t have to plan their schedules around rush hour. Drivers will keep to the speed limits and fewer trucks will drive through town. Canton will be accessible by many transportation modes, and will be convenient and safe for walking andbiking with paths connecting the reservoir, Blue Hills, Ponkapoag Pond, and Blue Hills Regional Vocational Technical High School. The town will be pedestrian-friendly with clean, curbed sidewalks in every neighborhood and utilities will be underground. The town’s small-town character will be maintained. Canton history and open land will be preserved for diverse uses including recreation and conservation. Historic character will be enhanced and maintained. There will continue to be stonewalls and tree-lined streets and other elements that define Canton. There will be an expanded diversity of population (culturally and socio-economically). There will be a centrally located Town Park that is accessible by everyone. It will serve as the town’s focal point and will be used for everything from resting on a bench to flying a kite to playing pick-up soccer or walking a dog. More recreational opportunities will be available, especially in relation to natural resources. Existing playgrounds and parks will be well maintained. Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page i CMPlttnr20ay18 Executive Summary Master Plan Goals The following goals were developed after multiple discussions with a broad cross-section of Canton’s community as part of Phase I of the master plan. The Plan’s recommendations respond to these goals. Land Use. Developing will be in keeping with Canton’s town character and the Center will be a vibrant activity center with a unified look. This transformation may include some changes to the existing land use pattern. Housing. Canton will provide homes for a diversity of residents, including those of different socio-economic levels and those at different points in the life cycle. Care should be taken to preserve the New England character throughout the town. Natural Resources. The Town will preserve, maintain, and acquire open space. The Town will also preserve and maintain natural resources, and residents will have reasonable access to natural resources. Both open space and natural resources will be well identified and publicized. Open Space and Recreation. Canton will continue to provide diverse recreation opportunities for residents of all ages. Historic and Cultural Resources. Canton will preserve its history for conservation as well as education purposes. Transportation. The Town will work – both locally and regionally – towards improving traffic flow, including providing alternatives to automobile travel. Economic Development. The downtown will be revitalized with a unified look and a pedestrian-oriented center. Development will be controlled and thoughtful development will preserve town character. The downtown will be beautiful, vibrant, and full of activity. Public Facilities and Services. The Town will continue to provide high quality services, facilities, and infrastructure, while maintaining efficient resource management. The town will value its facilities and infrastructure and will maintain them well. Residents will all know what services are available in town and how best to access those services. Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page ii CMPlttnr204a18 Executive Summary ▯ Overview of Recommendations Representative Resident Quotes “We could have a waterfront downtown.” “We need a focal point in the center, a community gathering place.” “Canton is a great place to live; I wish my kids could afford to live here.” “It would be great if there was a system of trails you could take all around town.” “We have so many beautiful open spaces and water bodies; we need better access to them.” “Canton has so much history that even people who live here don’t know about.” “We have to do something about the traffic problem; I organize my life around rush hour traffic.” “More commercial development could help keep the tax rate down.” “We need a place for our teenagers to go so they can stay out of trouble and for seniors to stay in touch with each other…. Maybe they can share the same space and learn from each other.” The main features of the Plan include: ▯ A proposed economic development overlay district where economic development is concentrated and impacts are controlled. ▯ An overlay district in the town center which encourages mixed use, increased density, more housing supports more retail mix, more community gathering space, more access to nature (river and green), more connected by bike paths, east-west connector, and public transportation. ▯ Several neighborhood nodes of increased use and density—fully side-walked and trail-connected. ▯ System of paths and sidewalks connecting landmarks, natural and historic features and places to go, throughout. ▯ Increased access to water, both visually and physically. ▯ Ways of protecting and enhancing the town’s character including: protecting natural features, creating wooded corridors, preserve stonewalls and tree-lined streets. ▯ A multi-pronged approach to providing affordable housing. ▯ Major land use issues revolve around the potential future of some of the town’s major open spaces—its golf courses, undeveloped areas, and state-owned lands; and redevelopment of some of its older industrial areas. ▯ Increasing awareness of and access to existing resources – natural, recreation, historic and cultural is an important recommendation contributing to the quality of life for Canton’s residents. Creating historic districts is one of the recommended strategies for achieving this. Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page iii CaPltnr2M0a18 Executive Summary General Land Use Plan Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page iv CMPlttnr20ay18 Executive Summary Some of the desired impacts of the Plan include: ▯ The Center, with more dense development and an increase in housing, and an east- west connector that allows some people to by-pass, and the creation of community gathering spaces, becomes more of a social center. More people will be living in the Center so more people will be walking. Newly developed multi-family housing and the Housing Authority elderly housing project are located in the center. If the teen and senior centers are also located in or near the Center, there will be many more reasons to go to there which in turn will provide support for additional restaurants and retail. Façade improvements, design review, improved signage, etc. will also make it a more attractive place to be. ▯ The natural and historic features will be protected adding to the town’s character, economic development potential and quality of life for its residents. ▯ Neighborhoods are preserved because growth and development is concentrated in well-defined areas. ▯ Encouraging commercial growth in targeted areas, with particular emphasis on the Rt. 138 area increases the tax base. Design review of new development in this area assures that streetscapes are attractive. ▯ Transportation concerns regarding traffic congestion and public safety are dealt with to the extent possible by introducing traffic calming measures, increasing public transportation options, creating a new east-west connector, making the town more walkable and bikable and providing for resident-only parking spaces near the commuter rail stations. ▯ A multi-pronged housing plan when implemented will ensure a range of housing types to meet a range of housing needs in terms of affordability, size, and housing type. ▯ When the neighborhood nodes are developed the center of town is transformed more into a loop with the potential for a public shuttle bus connecting the various main destinations. The reservoir becomes a main and central feature with the potential for additional recreational facilities. ▯ Efforts towards preserving the town character will be rewarded in a number of ways, including: the preservation of aesthetically pleasing and unique features and qualities, the support of real estate values, the preservation of wildlife habitat, the preservation of and connection between historic properties, and an environment in which new building is in keeping with the existing character (both built as well as open space) which results in a sense of place that is pleasing and recognizable. Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page v CaPltnr2M0ay18 Executive Summary Comparison of Build Out to Proposed Plan A master plan provides an alternative to the scenario of allowing change and growth to occur uncontrolled and without guidance. It is a proactive rather than a reactive approach to change. The master plan should be compared to the “do-nothing” scenario, which is represented in the Build-Out Analysis, that is, the type and amount of development that would occur given existing zoning regulations Build Out Analysis The Build-Out Analysis represents what Canton would look like if the town does nothing but enforce existing zoning. Based on existing zoning and trends in Canton, it is predicted that the town will reach total build out by the year 2025. This development, if uncontrolled, would result in a significant loss of major open space, an addition of a large number of households (2,357 additional households), and the subsequent pressure on existing services, and a large number of students (900) added to the school system. The following table compares the impacts of the proposed plan to those of the build out (enforcing existing zoning). Build-out vs. Proposed Plan Impacts Residential Solid Waste Non-Recycled School New Water use Tons Solid Waste Students Roads Gal/day Tons Build Out 459,387 3,142.2 2,234.5 900 20.08 Plan 354,086 2,422.0 1,722.3 694 15.47 Difference 105,301720.2 512.2 206 4.61 The build-out analysis does not consider redevelopment possibilities; these could significantly increase the above estimates. ▯ Existing Conditions and Resources The following is a summary of existing conditions and resources by master plan element: Housing • Population will reach “build-out” by 2025 • Demand for Housing is high • Almost 75% of residents could not afford to buy in Canton today • Future demand will be for smaller housing units Historic Resources • Town’s history is rich and varied • Lack of recognition and protection • Important resource which helps define town character Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page vi CaPltnr2M0ay18 Executive Summary • Educational opportunity Natural Resources, Open Space and Recreation • Contribute to town’s character, economic welfare and the quality of life for residents • Rich agricultural heritage (colonial era) • Neponset River – a limited resource – provides drinking water for 150,000 people • Soil in many of the undeveloped areas are poorly suited for on-site septic systems • Deficiency in number of smaller neighborhood parks; need for additional soccer fields Transportation • Traffic congestion is a major concern for residents • Canton has excellent access • Need for east-west connector • Desire for alternative modes of transportation to relieve traffic congestion Economic Development • Favorable location makes attractive to several kinds of commercial and industrial activities • Positive impact on tax rate • Currently 40% of taxes are from commercial and industrial uses • Brownfield sites provide potential for redevelopment Public Facilities • Few additional facilities needed • Several facilities recently upgraded (including new school, library and police station) • Needs: o Senior center o Teen center o DPW Maintenance facility o New fire station o Possibly new elementary school o Water and sewer concerns Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page vii CaPltnr2M0a18 Executive Summary Existing Conditions: Opportunities and Constraints Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page viii CaPltnr2M0a18 Executive Summary ▯ Overview of Proposed Plan In contrast to the Build Out which assumes no proactive action on the part of the Town, the Master Plan proposes to guide and control growth in such a way so as to be consistent with the vision statement and goals and policies as developed by a broad cross-section of the Canton community. The following is an abbreviated summary of the Plan; a much more detailed summary of the major recommendations by master plan element is provided in the beginning pages of each chapter of the plan as contained in this document. The plan summary is presented as follows: Targeted Planning Areas • Canton Center and Surrounding Areas • Route 138 Corridor & Adjacent Areas Neighborhood Nodes • Route 138 at Stoughton line • Foot of Blue Hills • Cobbs Corner Major Open Space Opportunities • Golf Courses • State-owned Lands • Creation of an open space system Redevelopment Opportunities • Draper Mills • Emerson Cummings Public Facilities and Service Needs Implementation ▯ Targeted Planning Areas Town Center • The Economic Opportunity Overlay District in the Center encourages mixed-use development and a more vibrant and diverse mix of commercial activity with a larger number of people living near the center to support these. The proposed overlay district would be surrounded by a transitional residential zone of reduced density. • The proposed Revere Street District recommends future reuse of the Plymouth Rubber site to create a unique mix of uses, community gathering space and increased access to the river. Uses should include small business incubator space artist studios and galleries, performance space, community gathering space and a farmer’s market. Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page ix CaPltnr2M0a18 Executive Summary Route 138 Area • Consider modifying the existing Economic Opportunity Overlay District to allow an even broader mixture of uses. Permitting residential uses may encourage creative mixed-use redevelopment of some of these areas that includes work places, shopping, and residences in a village-like setting. • The revised overlay district should also include provisions for frontage roads, sidewalks, and greenway corridors to encourage a pedestrian oriented area with minimal congestion; and it should include design review to assure that the development protects the historic and cultural heritage of Canton and encourages building alterations that are compatible with the existing environment and are of superior quality or appearance. Encourage commercial developers to mitigate impacts on the residential character of the corridor. ▯ Neighborhood Nodes • The plan also proposes supporting the development of three neighborhood nodes where mixed uses are encouraged and some commercial activity developed to serve surrounding neighborhood needs. In all cases, recommendations take into account the need to protect the center from competition thereby ensuring its continued role as town center. • The Plan proposes three neighborhood mixed use nodes: o Foot of Blue Hills area o Cobbs Corner o Route 138 at Stoughton Line ▯ Major Open Space Opportunities The Town has a number of large parcels of open space that contribute to its character, provide active and passive recreation and are habitat for a number of wildlife species. These include: Neponset River Corridor, Mass. Audubon and Trustees of Reservation lands, six golf courses, Mass. Hospital School site, and Fowl Meadows. The Plans main recommendations regarding open space focus on the following: • Protect golf courses from development • Acquire access and use of large state-owned properties • Develop a system of open spaces connected by trails and paths. • Increase access to water, both visually and physically ▯ Redevelopment Opportunities It was determined that the three sites for which reuse is most feasible and desirable for the near future are three of the town’s brownfields: Planners Collaborative, Inc. Page x CaPltnr2M0a18 Executive Summary • Emerson Cumings • Draper Mills • Plymouth Rubber It is recommended that both of these be redeveloped for use as affordable housing and that an affordable assisted living facility be developed at the Draper Mills site. ▯ Public Facilities and Services Needs The town has recently undertaken major facility upgrade projects including a new school, library and police station. Additional public facility and services needs identified include the following: • Senior center • Teen center • New maintenance facility for DPW • New fire station • Possible need for a new elementary school in the York Street area • Water and sewer concerns ▯ Implementation Town Actions In order to complete the vision of the plan the Town must undertake a series of actions. These fall under the following categories (and are itemized in the pages which follow): • Zoning actions • Other growth management tools • Town management practices • Master plan review and update • Capital and Other Improvements • Land Protection The Summary Table on the pages that follow outlines the action steps needed to implement the plan, identifying who the responsible parties are and the recommended timing of the action.
