Arlington's current Plan, covering the years 2015 through 2022, was approved by DCS on September 23, 2015.  The Plan is an informative resource, highlighting the many open space and recreational resources in our community, and outlining actions to protect and maintain them as the Town changes and develops.  The Plan also complements the recently adopted Master Plan.

The Open Space Plan is a large document and may take time to download from this site. Your patience is appreciated.  You may view the document as a whole, or select the individual chapters of interest.
