The Wiscasset Comprehensive Plan was prepared by a local Comprehensive Plan Committee composed of volunteer citizens over the course of several years of data gathering, discussion, debate and compromise. The Committee was also guided by what the citizens of Wiscasset said in a public opinion survey, in public meetings and in a public visioning session. The Committee will periodically meet until after the 2010 Census is published. A comprehensive plan life span is thought to be approximately ten years. Because the Town adopted the plan in 2007, it is expected the committee will formally reconvene during 2011.
