The Town of Hopkinton, with assistance of professional planning consultants, is conducting a workshop as part of the community visioning project. The purpose of the project is to develop a unified vision, guiding principles, and strategic goals to imagine the best future for Hopkinton. 

The workshop will include digital group polling and small discussion groups. Light refreshments will be provided.

While the workshops are open public meetings, it is very helpful if you pre-register so that we can ensure enough workshop materials for you. Thank you!

Visioning Flyer 2014

Thank you to everyone who has already taken the visioning survey online. If you have not taken it, please take the time to do so. We want to hear from you.

The survey is also available to pick up in the Town Manager's Office.

Dear Hopkinton Resident,

We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to be heard. 

The Hopkinton Board of Selectmen created the Hopkinton Visioning Steering Group to help navigate a process to solicit input from you on what our community might look like ten years from now. 

The group has created a survey which is an important tool designed to help create a vision for the future, and action steps to achieve that vision. 

The process will also include bringing together a diverse group of community residents to gather and evaluate local information, and based on that information along with the results of the survey develop the vision.

The Board of Selectmen and the Visioning Steering Group are thankful for your participation. The results of the survey will be compiled and released later this fall. 

After you have taken the survey, discuss it hereMindmixer

Town Hall Basement Closure September 8 - October

Town Hall Renovation Phase 1
To all residents and visitors of the Town, please note that construction projects on the Town Hall will be starting August 29th. These projects include rehabilitation of the basement, replacement of the slate roof and rehabilitation of the exterior masonry.

Access to the basement will be closed to the public on occasion throughout the basement rehabilitation project. This entrance provides an accessible route into Town Hall for persons with a disability. Town staff will provide assistance to anyone needing help in gaining access to the building when the basement is closed. Please contact the Facilities Department at508-497-9738 in advance of visiting Town Hall and they will coordinate with you to provide assistance at the scheduled time of your arrival. Should there be a need for immediate assistance gaining access to the building, please call the Town Manager’s Office at 508-497-9700 and arrangements will be made.

During these projects there will also be a need to temporarily close the sidewalk in front of Town Hall on occasion and pedestrian traffic will be rerouted.  

Also on occasion, the entrance to the parking lot behind Town Hall may be closed for periods of time as work is being completed on that side of the building. The entrance will be relocated to the existing exit and will be utilized for both the entrance and exit to the parking lot. 

Notices of these changes will be posted in advance on the Town website www.hopkintonma.gov.

The Town greatly appreciates your patience during these important projects. If any member of the public has any questions, they may call the Town Manager’s Office at 508-497-9700.

POSTPONED - Community Visioning Project Workshop June 18 at 6pm

posted May 2, 2014, 12:33 PM by Christopher McClure   [ updated Jun 16, 2014, 9:50 AM ]

After thoughtful consideration, the Visioning Steering Group (appointed by the Hopkinton Board of Selectmen) agreed to re-schedule the Community Workshop, which was scheduled for Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at 6 pm. 

The Steering Group, in consultation with Town Hall staff and the consultants, agreed that a detailed plan for public input needed to be developed and that any attempt at creating a vision for Hopkinton would greatly benefit only from a wide range of opinions of Hopkinton residents and organizations.

We appreciate your interest in the June 18 workshop and you will be invited to participate in future workshops, which are expected to be held in September.

More information to come. In the meantime, your continued discussion will help in shaping the discussions in September. Click Mindmixer to join the conversation.
