Project Scope

The CPNI Norwood Workshop was held April 29-30, 2021. The April workshop focused largely on envisioning the Town’s future and potential economic development strategies the town could employ. Most of the conversation focused on the community’s desire for future growth, ways to promote and market the community, preservation of the “small town-rural character,” and high-level planning considerations.
