Take this survey to help Cape Cod Commission better understand housing needs and community preferences for compact housing development and gauge local preferences for building forms, scale, height and styles in Eastham, Orleans and Falmouth.
According to Cape Cod Commission survey handout, "The Cape housing market does not adequately meet the needs of our residents and workforce at varied incomes and life stages. The region is dominated by single-family detached housing, which comprise more than 80% of all units on Cape Cod. That’s higher than the national average of 63.5% and a third higher than the rest of Massachusetts, 52%.
The Cape Cod Commission and partner towns of Eastham, Orleans and Falmouth are looking at acceptable alternatives to this traditional development pattern in each community. In support of broad community engagement, which started with town-based meetings held in June, the Commission created an online visual preference survey to gauge local preferences for building forms, scale, height and styles."
Please take the survey HERE. Responses received by October 4, 2018 will be considered in the Community Resiliency By Design Workshops later in the month. The survey will remain open allowing responses received after October 4, 2018 to help inform future planning community planning.
