PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT: Planning for the Future Transportation Needs of Cape Cod

The Cape Cod Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) has begun the process of developing the Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2018-2022 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and the FFY 2018 Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP).

The TIP serves as a prioritized listing of roadway, bridge, multi-use path and transit projects proposed for implementation during the next five (5) federal fiscal years. The UPWP describes all significant transportation planning activities planned on Cape Cod over the twelve (12) month period. Additional information the TIP and UPWP is included in the attached flyers.

A series of Cape Cod MPO public meetings have been scheduled to develop these documents and seek public input. Document development will also be discussed at public meetings of the Cape Cod Joint Transportation Committee (JTC), an advisory committee to the Cape Cod MPO.

Meetings will be held at the Cape Cod Commission Office at 3325 Main Street (Route 6A) Barnstable, MA 02631. Transit service is available on the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority’s Barnstable Villager Route (Barnstable Village-Courthouse stop).

Mashpee Hazard Mitigation Plan Survey closes April 3

The opportunity for Mashpee residents to provide input during the drafting of the 2017 Hazard Mitigation Plan update is coming to a close.

The Town of Mashpee is updating its previous plan with the assistance of the Cape Cod Commission. The Commission is facilitating the process, data collection and drafting of the plan update.

Hazard mitigation plans identify critical town infrastructure, vulnerabilities to natural hazards and actions for the town to take to protect facilities and residents. Approved plans also help maintain eligibility for state and federal pre- and post-disaster funding.

The survey is aimed at collecting information from residents about hazards they have experienced, their top concerns and actions they've taken to prepare. The information will inform the town's consideration of specific hazard types and possible mitigation for inclusion in the plan.

A draft plan is expected to be presented to the Mashpee Board of Selectmen around June 1. It needs to be submitted to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency prior to June 30

Log on and take the nine-question survey at capecodcommission.org/mashpeesurvey. It will remain open through April 3.
