Creative Planning Solutions in a Cape Cod Community

Tighe & Bond worked with the Town of Brewster to complete the Town’s first Local Comprehensive Plan (LCP). Building upon a strategic visioning process completed by the Town in 2018, the Brewster Vision Plan goals and actions set the stage to develop a targeted action plan that incorporated these goals and actions into a plan framework consistent with the Cape Cod Commission’s Regional Policy Plan.

Tighe & Bond’s scope was designed to help the Town capitalize on these previous efforts and build upon the momentum already achieved through an equally robust, creative, and flexible planning process. Providing for sufficient stakeholder and public input was a key component of the planning process. Tighe & Bond’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) staff also developed maps of Brewster’s natural resources and open space, water, coastal, and historic resources, and existing zoning and land use.

Tighe & Bond participated in monthly meetings with the Brewster Vision Plan Committee throughout preparation of the planning process and completed the layout of the draft and final LCP for public review. The LCP was presented at the Fall 2022 Town Meeting and was returned to the Vision Plan Committee for minor amendments.

The Town of Brewster will be the second Town on Cape Cod to develop and seek certification of its LCP under new Cape Cod Commission LCP regulations.
