The Town of Eastham opted to create a District of Regional Planning Concern (DCPC) for the North Eastham area. A DCPC allows for creation and adoption of special regulations. These special regulations direct how development and land use are regulated within a district. Once incorporated into the local zoning bylaw, Town agencies oversee development and land use within the district.
Over the past seven months, the Town worked with the Cape Cod Commission to develop implementing regulations for the North Eastham DCPC. This process involved community engagement, including two public workshops, two public surveys, multiple Planning Board workshops, and several public hearings. The feedback from these meetings informed the development of the proposed regulations.
The Future of North Eastham application highlights the redevelopment potential of this neighborhood based on the amended zoning.
