EASTHAM – A public informational session will be held Tuesday to discuss potential changes to the zoning bylaws in Eastham.

The Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates recently approved a District of Critical Planning Concern in North Eastham.

The district allows for a temporary moratorium on development to permit the community to institute new regulations.

The public can weigh in from 4 to 6 p.m. at Eastham Town Hall.

The district encompasses 280 acres in North Eastham bounded on the north by the Eastham/Wellfleet town line; to the south by Old Orchard Road, to the east by the Cape Cod Rail Trail; and to the west by Herring Brook Road and Massasoit Road.

The designation was approved under three provisions of the DCPC regulations, including Economic or Development Resource District, Affordable Housing Resource District and a Transportation Management District.

The Cape Cod Commission, which approved the district in October, found the area possesses significant natural and economic resources, or value of regional, statewide or national significance.

The full decision and related files are available at www.capecodcommission.org/projects.
