Community Snapshot Report is published!

The Vision Keene 20-Forward Community Snapshot Report highlights key citywide demographic and economic benchmark data and established goals from recent planning efforts. This data will be used to inform the Vision Keene 20-Forward Comprehensive Master Planning process.

The Vision Keene 20-Forward Think-Tank was conducted on May 30-31, 2024 as a highly participatory 2-session workshop.

The workshop explored the future of Keene and identified a preferred future scenario validated by its participants. The scenario-based Think-Tank aimed to gain a better understanding of community priorities and goals that will contribute to the creation of the Community Vision that will inform the upcoming comprehensive master planning process.

Comprehensive Master Plan Project Summary

Learn from the past, plan for the future! The City of Keene has embarked on a visioning and planning project that will update the City’s 2010 Comprehensive Master Plan (CMP).

The update will take place in two phases, beginning with the renewal of Keene’s Community Vision. During the second phase, each of the 2010 CMP’s multiple topic-oriented chapters will be examined and updated to reflect current community priorities. The 18-month process will result in an updated Community Vision, Community Snapshot, and Comprehensive Master Plan that will guide the community’s decision-making for the next ten to fifteen years.
