“Build-out” is a theoretical condition in which all available land suitable for residential, commercial, and industrial construction has been developed to the maximum conditions permitted by local ordinances. A build-out analysis is a planning tool that identifies areas with development potential and projects future development based on a set of conditions (e.g., zoning regulations) and assumptions (e.g., population growth rate).
This is not what will be, only what can be. It is based upon the developable land that remains in Lovell and also on the ordinances currently in place. Funding limited the work to one of our service area towns, the results may be similar for the towns of Stoneham, Stow and Sweden.
