Project Objective

The Town of Chatham has requested technical assistance from the Cape Cod Commission to conduct a land use planning study of the Route 28 corridor from the Crowell Road intersection to the Harwich town line in order to address local concerns about the form and layout of future development along the roadway.  The study area includes all parcels fronting on Route 28 between Crowell Road and the Harwich town line. The study will examine land use and streetscape issues adjacent to but not including the roadway itself.

The overall scope of the planning study includes identifying potential opportunities to enhance or change development patterns along the corridor and/or other streetscape improvements consistent with the town’s Long Range Comprehensive Plan, and developing visualizations of these potential changes for consideration by the town and the public.

Two Projects

The Route 28 corridor through Chatham is currently the topic of two significant planning and design efforts. This website addresses the Chatham Route 28 Corridor Visioning Project. It examines land uses on Route 28 between the South Chatham/Harwich town line and the Crowell Road intersection. The West Chatham Roadway Design Project is a separate but coordinated project being undertaken by Howard/Stein-Hudson Associates (HSH) and the Town of Chatham. The Roadway Design Project addresses issues of roadway design and traffic operation, and not future land use of the corridor. If you are interested in more information about the Roadway Design Project, please visit the Project Page.
