Do you have an opinion about how motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and persons with disabilities could best be served through transportation?
The Barnstable Complete Streets public comment period is now open. The Cape Cod Commission is seeking transportation improvement suggestions now through Aug. 31, 2022.
In January 2022, the Town of Barnstable was officially recognized as a Complete Streets community. The Cape Cod Commission and the Town of Barnstable are working together to analyze the Town’s transportation network to identify opportunities to create a more connected, efficient, and accessible roadway network. The Commission and the Town of Barnstable are seeking community feedback at village meetings and through an online interactive public comment tool.
A Complete Street provides accommodations for all users including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and persons with disabilities. The purpose of the study is to explore transportation improvement alternatives that will reduce conflicts, improve traffic flow, and incorporate multi-modal transportation options in Barnstable while furthering the creation of vibrant, pedestrian and bicycle oriented mixed-use centers throughout the town.
Upcoming meetings have been scheduled for:
- Tuesday, July 26, at 4:30 p.m., Village of Hyannis, Barnstable Adult Community Center, 825 Falmouth Road (Route 28), Hyannis
- Thursday July 28, 4:30 p.m., Village of Centerville, Centerville Public Library, 585 Main Street, Centerville
- Wednesday Aug. 3, 4:30 p.m., villages of Barnstable and West Barnstable , St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 3055 Main St., (Route 6A), Barnstable
Residents are encouraged to attend one of the meetings to learn more about this effort and to share ideas for projects that would better support walking, biking and safe driving in the Town of Barnstable.
Based on community feedback, staff will develop a draft Prioritization Plan which is a list of priority roadway improvement projects ranked by defined evaluation criteria such as increase in safety, ability to implement and community support.
