Last Wednesday, September 27, 2017, at the invitation of Paul Lagg, Town Planner for the Town of Eastham, the Urban Land Institute of Boston/New England was asked to form a Technical Assistance Panel (TAP) to address land use and development issues in North Eastham, Rock Harbor, and throughout the Town of Eastham.

Included among the experts on the panel was Rich May Attorney James Heffernan, who served as Co-Chair of the panel with Jamie Simchik, an urban planner and real estate development advisor with Simchik Planning & Development.

The Eastham TAP convened in Eastham, Massachusetts on September 27, 2017, bringing together stakeholders, community leaders, and a panel of planning, design, engineering, and development professionals for a day-long session focused on identifying the issues, constraints, and opportunities presented by Eastham’s development. Recommendations of the TAP were presented to the stakeholders and community that evening at Eastham Public Library. Click here to view the final report and learn more about the Eastham TAP.
