(Barnstable, MA – October 26, 2021) The Town of Barnstable is updating the Local Comprehensive Plan (LCP), last updated in 2010. The LCP will set out a vision for growth and development, land use, infrastructure, and resource protection for this distinctive community, as well as a targeted action plan to guide our future work and resource allocation.  

The LCP’s development will be steered by a Local Comprehensive Planning Committee. The purpose of the Committee is to better facilitate and communicate the planning process, and engage the greater community in the planning effort. 

At this time the Town is seeking input in the composition of this important committee. A memorandum outlining the proposed committee format and appointment make up was distributed in draft form to the Town Council on October 21, 2021. The memorandum is currently available for public review and comment and can be found on the Planning and Development website, Local Comprehensive Plan page: https://townofbarnstable.us/Departments/planninganddevelopment/Projects/Local-Comprehensive-Plan.asp.

Public comment on this memorandum, including the structure of the committee and appointment process, will be accepted through November 15, 2021.  Updates, including information about how interested residents can apply for a seat on the committee, are anticipated to be provided at the Town Council meeting on November 18, 2021, with additional communications to follow.  Please direct comments to Elizabeth Jenkins at elizabeth.jenkins@town.barnstable.ma.us with LCP Committee in the subject line.
