Marion 2050

The next three years will impact Marion thirty years from now. My planning background and commitment to a vibrant, resilient community can help the Planning Board implement our Master Plan.

Cherishing our historic and cultural resources, evolving to meet our climate and commercial needs, Marion needs all hands on deck to implement the Master Plan recommendations.
