Important hearing on East Harwich development--August 9

Please attend the meeting to let the Planning Board know you support a balanced, comprehensive smart growth package for East Harwich that provides opportunities for economic development, housing AND natural resource protection that will benefit the entire town of Harwich and the region.

The proposed East Harwich Village Center and Natural Resource Protection District zoning package will be discussed.

Planning Board Meeting
Discussion of the East Harwich Village Center / Natural Resource Protection District Proposal
Tuesday, August 9th at 6:30 p.m.
Town Hall (732 Main St.), Griffin Room (2nd floor)

The East Harwich Village Center Collaborative developed the East Harwich plan after more than five years of study and public input. The East Harwich proposal calls for a vibrant mixed use village center in the current commercial district, balanced by natural resource protection zoning in the surrounding undeveloped regions.

Located in this surrounding region are the Pleasant Bay watershed, much of the town's drinking water supply and several sensitive freshwater ponds. Protection of these vital natural resources is critically important to the town of Harwich.

Please forward this email to all of your Harwich friends and neighbors. It is important for the Planning Board to know that Harwich citizens support a balanced package of desirable economic growth and protection of Harwich's sensitive natural resources. Thank you.

Thanks to Harwich Conservation Trust.
