Recommendation Guide

Organization of recommendations – from vision to action

  • The implementation plan is organized by five levels to acheive the Boxborough vision.
  • The vision is the most broad statement and actions are the most specific tasks.
  • There are seven aspirations to the vision. These are the community values and ambitions elicited by the vision, broken down into categories that each evoke a distinct theme. 
  • Each aspiration has several goals, each goal has several strategies, and each strategy has several actions.
