Community Design

The Cape's character is defined in part by its villages, structures, and landscapes. To ensure that this character is retained and that development is shaped in a manner consistent with the region's unique patterns, the Cape Cod Commission Planning staff offers a variety of technical services and expertise in several community design-related disciplines.

Using expertise in site design, architecture, historic preservation, and landscape architecture, the Commission offers a wide range of services to assist communities with creating and implementing their long-range planning goals, including:

  • design guidance
  • area studies and corridor plans
  • concept/land use plans
  • sustainable site and landscape design
  • visualizations and modeling
  • historic preservation
