As part of the ongoing Complete Streets prioritization plan efforts in the Town of Falmouth, a new online public survey is available to seek feedback on the Draft Prioritization Plan.
A Complete Street provides accommodations for all users including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and persons with disabilities. The Town of Falmouth is currently participating in the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Complete Streets Program and has retained the services of the Cape Cod Commission to develop the prioritization plan. The purpose of this study is to explore transportation improvement alternatives that will reduce conflicts, improve traffic flow, and incorporate multi-modal transportation options in Falmouth, while furthering the creation of vibrant, pedestrian and bicycle-oriented mixed-use centers throughout the town.
More than 300 potential Complete Streets projects were identified through the initial public comment period in January 2021. In collaboration with the town, a list of 50 priority projects were identified and included in the draft prioritization plan. This current online survey for the Falmouth Complete Streets Prioritization Plan will help further refine the draft prioritization plan and 50 projects that were presented at a public meeting held on Wednesday, January 19th by the Cape Cod Commission and Town of Falmouth. A recording of the recent public meeting can be found here: January 19th Meeting Video

Guided by the input from public meetings and in conjunction with the Town of Falmouth, Cape Cod Commission staff will prepare a final report and the Complete Streets Prioritization Plan. The prioritization plan will be submitted to MassDOT as part of the town’s ongoing participation in their Complete Streets Program. Approved projects are eligible for up to $400,000 in construction funding from MassDOT.
Feedback will be accepted through Wednesday, Feb. 16.
