- On May 19, 2022 the Board of Selectmen met with Raftelis. The findings of the Environmental Scan, including community input, was presented to the Board in draft form for their review and comment. That day, the Board began to develop the Strategic Outcomes of the plan in conjunction with the Mission and Value Statement created by the Expanded Management Team in April 2022. The Town will continue to work to finalize a draft of these Strategic Outcome areas.
- What’s next? The Town will engage the public through various public hearings and the GetInvolvedShrewsbury.com site to gather more feedback and reactions to the framework and strategic outcomes built by the Board from the previous round of Community Feedback! Stay tuned for dates to be announced soon.

During the months of April and May Raftelis reviewed and analyzed the community feedback received during the month of March from various community groups and individuals that participated on their own through GetInvolvedShrewsbury.com.

National Community Survey
The National Community Survey asked questions of the community on certain service and topic areas. The survey was active for 7 weeks and launched in two phases. The first phase, conducted through a direct mailing and online, was for a limited number of residents selected at random. The second phase was open to all residents through an online platform. Once the survey closed, the analysis of the data began and at the end of this analysis period it will be presented back to the Town in a report. Overall, the survey will assist the Town in the strategic planning process and other future endeavors. The second phase of the survey launched on March 3, 2022 and closed March 21, 2022. Thank you to all of the residents that participated! Your participation and engagement is important! The results from this survey are still being analyzed and compared to other communities in the eastern part of the United States with comparable populations and median household income.
