Open Space Plan Discussion

Monday, May 21st as part of its regular meeting, the Planning Board will begin discussing the Dennis Open Space Plan Update. The primary focus of this first session will be the public survey. The survey can be found here:


We will also discuss the balance between competing town needs  as found in these documents:

2016 Draft Open Space and Recreation Plan

2017 Housing Production Plan

Town of Dennis Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan 2016 Draft


Planning Survey – Take 2

It helps if, when you copy an old survey to reuse the questions, you set a survey closure date that is in the future and not the past.

Every couple years we update information important to the local planning process. The questions here cover a broad spectrum of information and supports our open space, recreation, housing and economic development discussions. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey and share it with your friends who have connections to Dennis.

Dennis Open Space Plan Nearing Completion

A year ago we held a public hearing on the Draft Open Space and Recreation Plan Update. The update is finally nearing completion after having responded to comments received and pulling in data from a community survey completed last winter.  I will be presenting this plan to the Board of Selectmen on November 29th for final endorsement so that we can submit the completed document to the state.  I am in the process of updating the blog with the changes that have been made. In the meantime, the Final Draft of the report can be found at the link below:
