Dennis Port Bench Program

Unanimous comments from the recent charrette requested that Dennis Port have benches and planters throughout the downtown area to encourage a comfortable shopping environment in the village. To offer these amenities, the Dennis Port Revitalization Committee is offering a bench program for people interested in memorializing loved ones or groups. The benches can be viewed at www.dennisportrevitalization.com.

This program will allow individuals or groups to buy a quality, attractively styled bench that will be memorialized with a permanently affixed plaque. To discuss plans to purchase one of these benches or for further information, please contact either Hank Bowen at 508-385-1934 or the Town Hall.

The Dennisport Design Charrette was an awesome experience.  For those of you who were not able to attend, understand that a Charrette is really a start, not an end to a process.  As the Dennisport Revitalization Commitee moves forward with the recommendations of the Charrette, there will be many opportunities to be heard.  The town strongly encourages your continued participation in the town planning process.  This includes for Dennisport as well as the rest of the town.

We have many things happening on the planning front.  Many required documents that have either been recently completed or are in development.  Recently completed is the Open Space and Recreation Plan, however this needs to be updated every five years, meaning it is almost time to start updating it as soon as it is completed.  Underway are the Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan, the Affordable Housing Needs Assessment and the Affordable Housing Action Plan.  Each of these documents require much input from the town, and also include short time frame updates.  We also have the Local Comprehensive Plan which will draw from all of these documents.  The Design Charrette will feed into the Local Comprehensive Plan, and into current zoning actions being considered.  Stay involved, get involved.  We need you to steer Dennis into the future.

ARE WE HAPPY WITH THE VILLAGE OF DENNISPORT?

The Dennisport Revitalization Committee has a goal for this year and it is vital to the economic health of the entire Town of Dennis.   We are planning a Charrette in the Spring of 2009.  A charrette is a professionally organized planning event that uses the talents and specific knowledge of multiple professionals trained to base their results on the ideas and desires of the community.  It will be a collaborative process among business owners, officials from the town region and state, residents (stakeholders), together with experts in architecture, planning, wastewater treatment, housing, transportation, and environmental sustainability.  This public participation event will be held at a local venue and moderated by an experienced charrette professional.  Public input will include discussions, debates, graphic visions, and finally, solutions.  The result will be a sustainable and practical plan of revitalization that all parties have agreed to implement.

How can you help in this effort?  We currently need volunteers during this charrette organizational phase to work in sub-committees for area studies, meeting planning, and organization.  We need your members to work on the sub-committee that is within the sphere of your expertise and interest.  Please submit the name(s) to Hank Bowen (tel. 508-385-1934) or Tom Huettner (tel. 508-394-7974) or e-mail us at DennisportRevitalization@gmail.com.  We have scheduled a series of workshop meetings to learn from you what issues should be addressed during the charrette.  These will be held at 6p.m. at the Dennis Public Library in Dennisport on the following dates:

 November 21st – Historical Heritage, Transportation, and Public Safety

December 5th – Economic Development, Social Services, Housing, Arts &  Culture

December 19th – Land Use, Wastewater, Alternative Energy

 Your cooperation and interest is much appreciated.  Dennisport will blossom with a successful charrette.
