Volunteer Opportunity - Comprehensive Plan Committee

Shape the Future of Raymond

The Town of Raymond needs your help!  We are currently seeking volunteers for the Comprehensive Plan Committee.   The current Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2004 and it is time for a new plan.

A comprehensive plan sets forth a vision and goals for the town’s future.  It is a long-term guide that establishes direction on policies, ordinances, community growth, economic development, and an overall foundation for land use regulation within the town.    

Raymond has changed significantly since 2004 and topics such as health and hazard mitigation, housing, community resilience and sustainability are among many new areas of importance.  Having a wide range of voices is essential to the comprehensive planning process.   We need citizen volunteers in order to create a plan that fairly represents and benefits our entire community.


If you are interested in joining the Comprehensive Plan Committee, please fill out the Volunteer Application.   Applications can be emailed to .  They can also be dropped off in person or mailed to the Town Office at 401 Webbs Mills Rd, Raymond, ME 04071
