The Town of Barnstable is currently in the process of updating our Housing Production Plan (HPP).  An HPP helps municipalities identify the best ways to meet their housing needs and shape the location, type, and design of development. This plan will consider best practices for promoting diverse housing options that align with the community’s vision and goals. Communities with a wide variety of housing types and programs are stronger, more diverse places to live with higher quality of life for residents.

Our current HPP expires next year, and we are hard at work with our consultants at JM Goldson to update our HPP. Community engagement is an integral part of this plan and our goal is to reach as many Barnstable community members as possible.

We invite you to join our hybrid Public Forum on Wednesday, November 30th at 6:00PM. This forum will be hosted in person at Barnstable Town Hall, 367 Main Street, Hyannis, as well as virtually through a Zoom webinar. This event is free and open to the public, though registration for the virtual option is required.   You can register here.

During the forum, the Town’s project consultants will present draft goals and strategies, then provide opportunities for community members to weigh in. You will be invited to participate in a variety of activities to voice your insights.

You can learn more about the existing Housing Production Plan at the Town’s Housing and Community Development website here.
