- Citizen Participation Plan to engage the community
- Needs Assessment and Market Analysis and Strategic Plan

The consulting services will be funded from the HUD HOME Investment Partnership program and Barnstable County.
The Barrett Planning Group is located in Plymouth, MA and specializes in Affordable and Fair Housing Policy, Community Development, Public Participation, and Strategic Planning. The project is expected to extend through the next ten months with public engagement events anticipated to begin in early fall.
