The Cape Cod Commission, in partnership with Fregonese Associates, has developed the Envision Tomorrow Online tool to allow users to explore the effects of land use decisions on Cape Cod. The tool allows users to examine how changes in the type of development may affect economic, environmental and social factors. The tool will assist in updating the RPP by providing the Cape Cod Commission with feedback about users’ land use and growth preferences.
The Cape Cod Commission is currently engaged in updating the Regional Policy Plan (RPP), which provides a framework for land use policy in Barnstable County. The RPP aims to balance the needs of our community with the goal of protecting the fragile Cape Cod ecosystem by developing policies and goals that safeguard the Cape’s character while also responding to rapidly changing and uncertain future conditions.
