Town Zoning & Public Engagement

TO ENHANCE COMMUNICATION WITH PUBLIC

BARNSTABLE OFFERING ZONING NOTICES BY E-MAIL

The Town of Barnstable is seeking to enhance communication with the public on matters related to zoning.  The Town is offering the opportunity to opt-in to e-mails about proposed zoning changes.

Massachusetts law requires municipalities to notify the public about proposed zoning amendments through a published notice in a local newspaper.  The Town recognizes the benefits of having diverse communication strategies, so staff established this effort.  After signing up to receive notices, the Town will e-mail messages about proposed zoning amendments prior to the required public hearings at the Planning Board and Town Council. The Town will also send messages about public meetings, workshops or other efforts that relate to amending zoning.  Members of the public can sign up for e-mail Zoning Updates HERE
