Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Cape Cod (MA) study
Study: Sandwich, MMR pose few conflicts

By Silene Gordon

A study funded by the Department of Defense and conducted in cooperation
with the four Upper Cape towns and the Mass. Military Reservation shows
that Sandwich has a minimal amount of conflict areas with regard to
joint land use issues with the base. 

With the sound of airplanes serving as an unintentional backdrop, Sharon
Rooney of the Cape Cod Commission delivered an update on the joint land
use study to Sandwich selectmen last week. 

"One of the biggest reasons for the study is the unprecedented
population growth in the area," said Rooney, noting that Sandwich's
growth at 30 percent in recent years is outdone on the Upper Cape only
by that of Mashpee, which grew almost 64 percent in the same time. "Our
charge was to examine land use and encroachment issues."
