NOTICE FROM Town:
March 13, 2018– We are experiencing heavy snows and high winds. All crews are out plowing. Additionally, we have had over 30 tree calls already this morning, with more coming all the time, so have three tree crews deployed to address them. Driving conditions are treacherous, and many roads have impediments to travel due to the downed trees or downed wires. Please remain where you are if at all possible.
Local guy doing amazing things.
Bikeways ... it’s a public safety issue and we should be encouraging people to bike and walk more. I had a harrowing ride this morning - there are few lanes for cyclists in the town and cars are driving way too fast.
Narrower lanes with designated bike lanes are what we should strive for.
It's your time to ask questions!!!
Vineyard Wind is holding an Open House at Barnstable High School on March 12 at 5:30 pm.
The Open House will give you an opportunity to hear from experts on the project team, learn more about the construction timeline, and to get a sense of the benefits and opportunities the project offers. They have asked me to moderate the discussion. See you there!!
This is how it begins. This voice, and voices of the countless victims and witnesses to these tragedies need to be amplified by us, all of us, to our neighbors..., to our elected officials, to our community leaders. And our elected officials owe them and all of us a response to why, why when the overwhelming percentage of the American public is in favor of responsible gun reform laws, that National leadership is unwilling to even have a floor debate regarding this?
It is time to call everyone out, make them go on record and articulate their position in detail. And its up to us to amplify those responses as well. But that is not enough, we need to use the collective power of our vote, from school committee to President and every ballot in between, to support people who will move this agenda forward, and replace those who won't.
Congratulations!! A gem on Centerville’s Main Street.
Would this be possible in Barnstable?
Great discussion at public Planning Board meeting this evening regarding the proposed Hyannis Growth Incentive Zone and the expansion of the zone to include the property at 35 Scudder. Issues re environmental impacts, non-profit impact on tax base, infrastructure, and other taxpayer concerns... conversation will continue Thursday night at Town Council.

Do you know an ordinary person who is doing extraordinary things? It is important to recognize those people in our community who are making it a better place to live. Last week Keith Rosary was presented with a "Community Hero Award" by the Town Council.
