Growth Nodes

Foxborough selected a Growth Nodes approach to guide future land uses, encompassing both residential and commercial development. The goal is to concentrate new development for maximum benefit with minimum impact to resources and town character.

Connectivity is a key part of the growth nodes plan. The Growth Nodes scenario proposes concentrating development in distinct locations, or nodes, that mirror the historic pattern of development along the rail line. A proposed trolley line and network of bike and pedestrian paths will make travel between nodes easy, while preserving town character and open space.
