BARNSTABLE – Ed DeWitt, Executive Director of the Association to Preserve Cape Cod, said the agency has taken on a wide array of issues having to do with the region’s character ever since it was founded in 1968 to oppose an effort to dredge out the Nauset Marsh.

These days, the nonprofit advocates on a wide range of issues, taking recent positions on the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant, an effort to build a Lowe’s store in Dennis, and protection of the Cape’s estuaries.

Among recent actions, APCC submitted comments concerning the draft 208 plan, the document drafted by the Cape Cod Commission to begin the process of addressing the Cape’s polluted estuaries.
