The Town Council voted and approved the New VoV LRR Ordinance CH 160 Chronic Problem Properties, search This ordinance was worked on through a Town Council Workshop on 1/10/13, viagra and re-submitted before the Council on 1/17/13. Additional discussion ensued and amendments were made, and a final draft was approved by the Council. This ordinance will allow the police department to engage the landlord or property owner in problems in the properties they own. It allows the dialogue to start early, and leaves adequate time for them to be heard and address the situation before being assessed costs. This is a great win for the residents of Barnstable in helping them to take back their neighborhoods, and improve their quality of life.

The Town Council voted and approved the proposed amendment to existing Ordinance CH 59 Comprehensive Occupancy, This ordinance changes the age of the “Occupant” from 22 down to 18. This will help to address the properties which are over-crowded with 18 – 21 year olds, who have entered into a lease agreement, but is not considered over crowded because before they were not a “legal occupant.”  This will go a long way to minimize the over-crowded rental properties that have disrupted our neighborhoods for a long time.

The remaining ordinance proposals are scheduled for a workshop on 2/14/13, and will be resubmitted for Public Hearing before the Council on 2/21/13. These ordinances are:

CH133 (Existing) – Noise Ordinance proposed change which will add the property owner/landlord accountable for chronic noise violations

CH170 (Existing) – Rental code proposal to increase the fine for violations from $100 to $300.

CH 54 (NEW) Property Maintenance – setting minimum standards for properties that are detrimental and devaluing our neighborhoods;

A copy of the remaining ordinances which have n ot been finalized is posted on this web site under Voices of the Village -> Task Forces -> Landlords, Rentals, and Regulations.

A big thanks to all of the Greater Hyannis residents who started this message and process through the Voices of the Village, and who worked hard on helping us be successful in getting these two passed.  Please continue your support as we work to get the remaining ones through the process and approved.

Greater Hyannis Civic Association Board Meeting Report – November 13, there 2012

The following topics were discussed at the November Board of Directors Meeting.

Robert O’Leary from the Hyannis Chamber of Commerce spoke to us about joining with them and other Cape associations to agree upon and adopt 5 basic principles which apply to the Cape Cod Waste 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 agreed to adopt these principles but we asked that they also add drinking water to the issue in addition to waste water.

Bob Lister from the Cape Maritime Museum spoke to us about his project involving 4 kids who are building a boat.  He would like to display the boat in Bismore Park during the harbor lighting.  The Board agreed.

Harbor Lighting Event:  event is from 4 – 8 in Bismore Park on December 1 as part of the Hyannis Xmas Stroll.  We now have two safe-serve people working the event. One volunteered to be trained and one volunteer was already trained. We are having a problem getting a lot of boats to decorate and participate due to the fact that many were taken out of the water for the storms. Santa will come ashore on the fire department boat.  There was also a request for helpers to decorate in the afternoon and also to work the event at night.  We will be serving chowder, cialis cookies, viagra coffee and hot chocolate.

We will be adding a large barrel of annuals to our garden spot at the intersection of Pleasant and South Street.

Voices of the Village Update: Hyannis Supporting Our Youth is starting their mentoring program on November 25th. The Landlords, Rentals and Regulation task force is meeting with the Hyannis Town Councilors on December 6 regarding the new proposed ordinances.  The Neighborhood Watch program is still in effect and available for neighborhoods who would like to participate.

The BoD approved the idea of placing an ad in the Patriot and Enterprise regarding our monthly Board meetings in order to get more members and other citizens to attend.

Forms are being filled out to obtain rates for insuring the GHCA Board of Directors.

The December BoD meeting will include a Q&A session with the lead architect for the new Hyannis Fire Station and also a presentation by Dick Murphy from Homeless not Helpless organization.  All are encouraged to attend.
