The Town of Brewster is participating in a collaborative effort to develop comprehensive planning to address changes to its coastal areas. This Coastal Adaptation Strategy will be based on current scientific information and on extensive public input and guidance. The public engagement consultant team is led by the Consensus Building Institute (CBI). Public Engagement includes development of a representative Brewster Coastal Advisory Group (BCAG), which will work with Town staff and the technical team over the next several months.
The purpose of the BCAG is to communicate the range of interests, views, and experiences of Brewster residents and businesses to guide technical assessments and information, support broad public involvement, explore and evaluate potential management strategies, and seek consensus recommendations for a Coastal Adaptation Strategy that is responsive to changing conditions.
CBI has submitted recommendations for members of the BCAG to the Brewster Board of Selectmen, who will appoint them at their January 25th meeting.
The first BCAG meeting will be on February 8th at 5:30 - 8:30 pm at the Brewster Police Department, at 631 Harwich Road. Public is welcome to attend the meeting.
