SANDWICH:

  • Support development and redevelopment of South Sandwich Village Center, $89,390 

    Worked with the town to maximize its economic development potential, primarily concentrating in the Sandwich Industrial Park and South Sandwich Village Center areas. The project also included the development of a land use scenario planning  tool to spatially depict current land use and development patterns and to create scenarios and evaluate impacts from alternate land use patterns across a wide range of metrics such as trips generated, water and energy use, wastewater generated, fiscal impacts, etc. The Commission worked with a consultant to develop this tool that will also benefit other towns in the region.  The Town is currently moving forward with a selected developer for the Town-owned South Sandwich Village Center parcel but will continue to work with Commission staff on alternate future development scenarios.
