A key recommendation of the Big Darby Accord is the development of a detailed master plan for the Town Center, a mixed-use development that includes a full range of residential, retail, office and public uses including parks and open space. The plan will provide detailed recommendations for future development and the protection of water quality and other natural resources.
The Master Plan is being jointly pursued by the Accord jurisdictions, and will take approximately one year to complete.
Planning for the Town Center requires extensive public involvement. Information on the Town Center planning process and opportunities to get involved are posted this page.
