As of October 2011
The Centerville Village Center area of the DCPC includes an existing business zoning district and residential parcels including the Main Street National Register Historic District. The DCPC has two purposes: an economic resource district and a cultural, historic, and architectural resource district. The town developed its implementing regulations for the Centerville Village Center area of the DCPC, and the Cape Cod Commission approved those regulations on August 6, 2009.
The Craigville Beach area of the DCPC includes a barrier beach along Nantucket Sound, an estuary system behind it, and freshwater ponds. It encompasses many summer homes and cottages and a former "Christian Camp Meeting" area, which is recognized within a National Register Historic District. The DCPC has five purposes: a natural and ecological resource district; a cultural, historic, and architectural resource district; a hazard district; a wastewater management district; and a waterfront management district. Rather than approved draft implementing regulations for this area of the district, in early September 2009, the Barnstable Town Council voted to have the town manager nominate the district again (see below).
Craigville Beach DCPC -- The Cape Cod Commission accepted the above renomination on October 1, 2009, and the Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates redesignated the Craigville Beach DCPC on November 4, 2009. The town revised draft implementing regulations for the Craigville Beach area. The Barnstable Town Council did not adopt the regulations, but the Cape Cod Commission did on October 28, 2010, as did the Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates on January 19, 2011.
