Comprehensive Plan 2023

Please find the revised version of the PROPOSED Stanford Comprehensive Plan as well as the list of corresponding changes that the Town Board made to the document we inherited from the Comprehensive Reviews Plan Committee. I will be available in my office for questions and we will, of course, hold public hearings – dates to be announced. Thank you to the generations of volunteers who have worked many many many hours to put this plan together.

Town wide Yard Sale

Reminder: Town of Stanford’s 2nd Annual Community-Wide Yard Sale Event this Saturday!

This year’s event – sponsored by the Stanford Business Association in collaboration with the Stanford Grange #808 – will be held on this coming Saturday, July 2nd from 9am – 3pm (rain or shine). There are 2 options available to those who still want to participate. If you want to sell your wares at your own location (or join up with several families), we will be happy to include you on this year’s map of “sales” locations that will be handed out to visitors. If you don’t have your own spot, you have the option to bring your “stuff” to the Grange property (limited space available, first come first serve). In either case, to participate – please contact Katie Fallon @ no later than Wednesday June 29 so that we can make sure your spot is secured and you are listed on the map of locations.
