Open Space and Recreation Plan

In 2018, the town received a $26,680 grant from the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) to complete a new, 7 year Open Space and Recreation Plan to meet the recreational and open space needs of Hulls residents, to meet the needs of and to potentially benefit economically from the influx of tourists who use the natural resources of the town for recreational purposed, and to examine and potentially address potential climate change adaptation and mitigation issues that are related to open spaces in town. 

The town has since contracted with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). MAPC's Open Space and Recreation Plans (OSRPs) are informed by data, animated by deep public engagement, and dedicated to producing actionable results. MAPC will work directly with the Town of Hull and the Open Space and Recreation Committee overseeing the project to determine the community's park and recreation assets and to understand the Town's key challenges as it plans for the coming years.

The kick-off meeting for this report was held on Monday, September 30, 2019 at 7PM in the Second Floor Exhibition Room in the Hull High School (180 Main Street). The presentation from this community forum can be viewed by clicking here
