Imagine Kingsbury Comprehensive Plan project. We are excited that you are interested in the future of the Town. The Town of Kingsbury has long been guided by its 1973 Comprehensive Plan. In light of many changes that have affected the community, along with the historic 2020 pandemic, the Town officials recognized that the community was in need of a new plan in order to understand current conditions and to identify and prepare for its future. The Town of Kingsbury formed a Town Comprehensive Plan Committee made of local residents, community leaders, and local business owners to oversee the planning process and guide the development of the new "Imagine Kingsbury" Comprehensive Plan.
The Imagine Kingsbury Comprehensive Plan project website is intended to provide information regarding the development of the Comprehensive Plan update, and keep the community informed of opportunities to participate in the process. The website was designed by Laberge Group as part of the update to the Town's Comprehensive Plan.

New - Stormwater Discharges from Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4)
Annual Report for period ending March 09, 2023. pdf
Kingsbury participates in a Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandated program for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4). The purpose of this program is to control the inflow of pollutants into the town's storm sewers and drainage ditches. Products such as oil, antifreeze, liter, animal wastes, fertilizer, pesticides and sediment for erosion can be washed into the storm drain system during rain storms or by melting snow. Eventually this untreated stormwater flows into our streams and lakes and can impact water quality.
