Basic Principles to Cape Cod’s Waste and Drinking Water Issues

Water is an important natural resource for Cape Cod.  As various individuals and organizations look into the problem of preserving this vital natural resource for future generations, the GHCA, with the Hyannis Chamber of Commerce and other Cape associations, has agreed to adopt 5 basic principles which apply to the Cape Cod waste water and drinking water issue.  The 5 principles are:

  • We have a nitrogen problem.
  • We cannot afford to ignore the problem
  • Whatever we do it must be scientifically based and environmentally sound
  • Whatever we do it must be done in the most financially responsible way
  • We must educate our constituents and ourselves on the issue

The GHCA Board hopes that local, state, and federal environmental groups will recognize our concern and adopt these principles as they look for solutions to the Cape’s wastewater issues.

Reminder – General Meeting on East End Developments

The Greater Hyannis Civic Association is pleased to host the proposed developers for two areas in the East End on Tuesday, are targeting different populations and are at different stages in their development. Therefore each presentation will be separate.  Each developer will share his current thinking on his project and answer your questions as best they can. 

As you know, the weather cancelled our meeting with Shoestring Properties on March 14th.  They have graciously agreed to come back to see us before their next meeting with the Planning Board scheduled for Monday, April 24th.   CapeBuilt Development has some initial drawings but is still gathering input before starting their permitting process.

Elizabeth Jenkins, Director of Growth Management, will be available to answer any questions.

Parking for the evening is available at the Dockside Property and in the lot across School St from the Dockside.

This is your chance to see the proposed projects and ask your questions.  Please come and bring a friend.
