What do you think about Hyannis?

The Cape Cod Commission and the Town of Barnstable have launched a survey to answer questions like:

  • What do you do in Hyannis?
  • Do you feel a sense of community?
  • Do you use its public spaces?
  • Do you shop on Main Street or on Route 132?
  • Would you live Downtown?

The Cape Cod Commission and the Town of Barnstable want your thoughts in these and other questions to better understand the issues and opportunities facing Hyannis.  Please take a few minutes to complete a survey at:

According to a statement by Commission Executive Director Paul Niedzwiecki, the survey is part of the 10-year reauthorization of the Downtown Hyannis Growth Incentive Zone and a broader look at Hyannis' economic centers and neighborhoods. A Growth Incentive Zone is a Cape Cod Commission designation that provides broad regulatory relief for development and redevelopment without the need for Commission review.

The survey is open to residents, second-homeowners, business leaders, visitors and anyone with opinions about Hyannis, its potential and its challenges.

Focus group meetings with business owners and employees, property owners, and residents in and around Hyannis will be scheduled and held during the winter.

The survey will be open through December 31, 2016. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
