Project Community Forum on Directed Growth
  • Directed Growth Goal
  • The Capes growth will consist of a mix of uses
    concentrated in higher-density village centers,
    focusing on infill and redevelopment rather than
    conversion of open space. (2003 Indicators
    Report)

CAPECOD2020
2004-05 Cape Cod Sustainability Indicators
Project Community Forum on Directed Growth
  • Definition Sprawl
  • Growth spread out, scattered
  • In-between density
  • Land-consumptive, loss of open space
  • Isolated uses
  • No centers, edges
  • Road-oriented (car use compulsory)
  • Dangerous for pedestrians, bikes
  • Lots of asphalt, few public spaces
  • Definition Smart Growth
  • Development concentrated in distinct centers
  • High-density, single and multi-story
  • Outlying open space protected
  • Mixed uses, variety of housing choices
  • Edges separate town from country
  • Pedestrian-oriented streets, sidewalks
  • Walkable, serviceable by transit
  • Civic spaces, parks

Project Community Forum on Directed Growth
  • Current Conditions
  • 230,000 year-round residents
  • Approximately 160,000 homes
  • January 2005 traffic conditions summer traffic
    of early 1970s

  • Affordable/workforce housing crisis
  • Labor shortages during peak season

CAPECOD2020
2004-05 Cape Cod Sustainability Indicators
Project Community Forum on Directed Growth
  • Sustainability Challenges
  • Reliance on on-site septic increases nitrogen
    pollution
  • Increased traffic adds to air pollution, hurts
    economy
  • Increased energy use contributes to climate
    change
  • Encroachment consumes open space and wildlife
    habitat
  • Monotypical, large-lot detached houses impacts
    affordability
  • Public service costs increase (e.g., fire,
    police, road repair, snowplows)
  • Community character and quality of life are
    harmed
  • Barriers to Change
  • Zoning encourages (even requires) sprawl
  • Changes in land-use rules threaten peoples
    conception of property rights
  • Some vested development interests prefer existing
    rules
  • Very difficult to change political mindset and
    encourage leadership

12
CAPECOD2020
2004-05 Cape Cod Sustainability Indicators
Project Community Forum on Directed Growth
  • Possible Local Actions
  • Change zoning high-density downtowns and
    low-density countryside
  • Preserve open space through land acquisition
    (Community Preservation Act)
  • Adopt regulations to protect water quality and
    wildlife habitat
  • Possible Regional Actions
  • 2006 Regional Policy Plan update Incentivize
    smart growth through changes in Cape Cod
    Commission regulations
  • Encourage redevelopment of existing sites
  • Provide leadership on regional wastewater
    planning and funding
  • Plan and implement better transit service
    (FlexRoute)
