Community & Economic Development

We are dedicated to making our town a better and safer place to live. A place where people want to raise a family and have their children raise their children. The Community Development Department works to protect, and where possible, enhance our natural resources and preserve the quality of life for the citizens of Natick. Through our Boards and Commission we strive to serve by building lasting partnerships with individual residents, community groups, professional services, providers, contractors, business leaders, and local and state officials. We stand for a commitment to the long-term interests of our community, and to delivering the highest quality of service.

The Community & Economic Development Department administers and enforces land development and building regulations - regulations adopted by the Town of Natick and Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In addition, the Community Development Department provides assistance to the public in understanding these regulations and other development related issues.
