Barnstable Officials Move Forward with Plans for Blish Point

BARNSTABLE – Barnstable town officials hosted a briefing last week with residents of the Blish Point neighborhood regarding their plans for flood resistance efforts in the area.

Officials indicated it is unlikely that any major infrastructure improvements can be completed before this winter due to time-consuming permitting and construction processes.

The state has already approved $1.55 million in funding infrastructure improvements which will be available in 2019.

In the meantime, the town is at work implement design, permitting, and construction plans for improvements for flood mitigation, with Town Manager Mark Ells expected to request additional funding this week’s Town Council meeting

Barnstable’s DPW will also be conducting monthly inspections of the catch basins in the neighborhood to ensure that they are not clogged.

A more permanent solution is expected to be delivered to the town by the engineering firm, the Woods Hole Group sometime this fall.
