Registration open for Fifth OneCape Summit Building Environmental, Economic and Community Resilience August 16-17, Wequassett Resort, Harwich The Cape Cod Commission will host the fifth annual OneCape Summit on August 16 and 17 at the Wequassett Resort in Harwich.

Originally launched to chart progress on regional water quality planning, last year the Summit expanded to include topics related to infrastructure and the economy. “The OneCape Summit has become a forum for local elected leaders, municipal staff and appointed board members, industry practitioners and community stakeholders to discuss regional issues related to the unique environment and economy on Cape Cod,” said Kristy Senatori, the Commission’s Acting Executive Director.

With a broad focus on the importance of environmental, community, and economic resilience in the face of ongoing natural and social change, this year’s Summit will cover the topics of water quality, coastal resiliency, infrastructure planning, community design, and economic development.

Confirmed speakers include Region 1 EPA Administrator Alexandra Dunn, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, Massachusetts Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Jay Ash and Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Matthew Beaton, and State Senator Julian Cyr. Both days feature plenary sessions, focused breakout discussions, and interactive, web-based tools for local and regional planning. Additional speakers and a detailed agenda will be shared in the coming weeks.
