Cape Cod Commission Unveils Regional Policy Plan Update

Cape Cod Commission Executive Director Kristy Senatori

BARNSTABLE – The Cape Cod Commission has released the latest draft Regional Policy Plan to provide a coherent set of goals, policies, and standards to guide planning and development on Cape Cod.

The update, which is required every five years, is now available on the commission’s website for a 60 day public review and comment period.

The 2018 RPP provides a path forward for sustainable growth and development and streamlined regulation, addresses critical housing needs, eases the local comprehensive planning process, and provides a framework for coordinated regional capital planning. It is goals-based and context sensitive.

It identifies the character areas that are important to defining the region and allows for regional policies and regulations to better respond to and enhance development that complements its surroundings.

The public is also invited to attend meetings scheduled across the region to offer residents a chance to comment on the draft. Feedback from the community has been an important part of the process to develop a plan which meets the needs of Cape communities.

Regional Policy Plan Public Meeting Dates:
October 11, 4:00-6:00, Sandwich Town Hall
October 17, 1:00-3:00, Truro Public Library
October 24, 6:00-8:00, Cape Cod and Islands Association of Realtors, West Yarmouth
