Providing a Roadmap for Future Development

In 2019, the Town of Truro acquired eight parcels totaling approximately 69 acres located along Walsh Way in Truro with the intent of developing all or a portion of the site for housing, recreation, open space, Town facilities, and/or infrastructure. The Walsh Property is primarily wooded and undeveloped with seven wood framed seasonal dwellings, out buildings, and several paved driveways.

Tighe & Bond completed an assessment of the capacity of the site for development to allow the Walsh Property Community Planning Committee to have an informed discussion of feasible uses of the property and to engage in a community planning process for long-term site master planning.

Tighe & Bond completed a desktop analysis of site and environmental constraints, GIS figures of resource constraints, a site analysis diagram, and potential site use plan. This was summarized in a technical memorandum that discussed site conditions and permitting necessary for the proposed development and improvements for the parcels.
