On September 7, 2021 the Smithfield Town Council created the Camp Shepard Sub-Committee based on recognizing the substantial benefits of public and staff input regarding the necessity for long-term planning of the property for the residents of Town.

Goals of the Camp Shepard Sub-Committee are as follows:

  1. Facilitate community engagement in creating a long-term plan for the property and identifying those uses that may be most suitable for the residents of our Town.
  2. Identify strategies that will delineate proposed recreation, leisure and cultural uses consistent with the goals of the Town’s Comprehensive Community Plan.
  3. Engage and work with any necessary consultants to develop a comprehensive plan and long-term vision for the property. The plan should include potential project phasing and a review of alternative funding sources.
  4. Present recommendation to the Smithfield Town Council on how to achieve the goals above.
