The Town of Eastham announces the first in a series of three public meetings on the North Eastham Village Center Master Plan.
The event will take place Wednesday, May 11, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Eastham Public Library, 190 Samoset Rd). All are welcome to attend this first public meeting, learn more about the project, and provide input to help guide preliminary design options, which will be presented at a second meeting in June. Final concept plans will be shared at a third meeting in October. For more information on the public meetings and the Master Plan project, visit www.northeasthammasterplan.com.
The objective of the Master Plan project is to create a roadmap for future use of three town-owned properties in North Eastham: 4790 State Highway Route 6 (known as the “T-Time Property”), 4550 State Highway Route 6 (Town Center Plaza property), and 1405 Nauset Rd (site of the current Council on Aging). The Town has hired Union Studio Architecture & Community Design of Providence, RI to lead the master planning effort. They are assisted by the Horsley Witten Group of Sandwich; Peregrine Group of East Providence, R.I.; and CapeBuilt of Hyannis.
The North Eastham Village Center Master Plan, once complete, will provide conceptual designs for the use of each of the three town-owned properties, as well as a comprehensive plan showing how the sites tie into the larger community. The final plan will include options for how built structures and natural spaces could be arranged on the sites, identify required infrastructure, and estimate costs for construction. Funding for the Master Plan project is being supplemented by a $75,000 economic development grant from the Massachusetts Rural and Small Town Development Fund.
For those unable to attend the in-person public meeting, all meeting materials will be made available for review and comment from May 12 through 27 on the project website at www.northeasthammasterplan.com. A recording of the meeting will also be made available through the project website and the Town of Eastham website at www.eastham-ma.gov.
