Cape Cod has a finite capacity to accommodate development while maintaining the healthy human and natural environments upon which our region depends. How and where the Cape's landscape is developed has a tremendous effect on the capacity of the environment to absorb additional growth.
The Cape Cod Commission assists communities in reshaping growth such that development is focused in existing centers where infrastructure is avaialble or can be planned to support new development. The Commission has a variety of growth management tools and expertise to offer communities to help guide development in the region in a sustainable way. Follow the links above for more information on these tools and resources.
