Recap of the Cape Cod Commission’s Public Hearing

Following today’s Public Hearing where very good presentations against approval of the Mashpee Nitrogen Control By-Law were made, the Cape Cod Commission unanimously approved it.

The Mashpee By Law is Chapter 107 in the mid section of the document below. It was passed at the Mashpee Town Meeting on October 30.

The By Law is not consistent with UMass Cooperative Extension recommendations as stated in the original law signed by Governor Patrick..

This was noted, however, the Commission decided to approve the By-Law in this form because it was felt that time was of the essence.

The By-Law is different than the Commission’s By-Law.  It is similar to the Falmouth By-Law which was rejected by the Attorney General’s Office, then reinstated during the Legislative Budget process.

The Commission members felt that it was OK if there are differences in different town Nutrient By Laws.  The Mashpee By-Law has been sent to the Attorney General’s Office for review.

Thanks to those who are participating in this long and challenging process and helping to keep everyone informed.
