Next week's town public meeting schedules burst with storm postponements

This week's storm put off several public meetings

This week's storm put a choke hold on Cape Cod, closing schools, libraries and town offices.  It also forced the postponement of many important town meetings across the Cape.


The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) public meeting scheduled for January 22, has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 29 at 3 p.m. at Barnstable Town Hall. The open meeting will be conducted by the Town of Barnstable Growth Management Department and will focus on the draft 2014 One-Year Action Plan. During the meeting, town staff will hear suggestions and questions from Barnstable residents, public agencies and other interested parties. Details about the CDBG are available on the town website here.


The Brewster Planning Board's public hearing on sign bylaws scheduled for January 22, has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 29 at 7:30 p.m. at the Brewster Town Hall. The selectmen will seek comment on proposed revisions to the town's current sign regulations. The revisions will be presented at the May 2014 Town Meeting. A draft of the recommended revisions which would in effect replace the current bylaws is available in PDF form here.


The Municipal Water Meeting scheduled for January 22 has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 29 at 5 p.m. at the Eastham Town Hall. The meeting is open and residents and business owners are encouraged to attend and ask questions and share their input. Members of the Board of Health, selectmen and others will be on hand to answer questions. Municipal Water Project maps are available here.

The "Save Eastham Windmill Weekend" meeting originally scheduled for  January 22 has been rescheduled for Wednesday, January 29 at 7 p.m. at the Four Points by Sheraton. The Eastham Windmill Weekend Committee has put out the call for volunteers. According to the committee, many of the key positions, held by the same folks for more than 30 years, are now vacant. The organization of the annual weekend in September is done by volunteers who also raise all the funds for the weekend. These efforts have kept the event going and have kept it admission free for attendees and participants. Read Paul Biegelsen's plea here.


A public hearing scheduled by the Town of Truro's Community Preservation Committee on January 21 was canceled and a new date for the meeting has yet to be announced.
