Taskforce on Sustainable Living for Falmouth's Workforce Families

The mission of the Taskforce is to prepare for Select Board consideration an action plan to promote a better quality of life for working individuals and families in Falmouth.   The Taskforce will consider potential actions related to service needs (e.g. childcare, housing support); providing financial resources for low and moderate income individuals and families; and policy change (e.g. zoning, tax policy).  To develop this action plan, the Taskforce will gather information on best practices from other municipalities and thought leaders.  The Taskforce will solicit community input on proposed action items making a concerted effort to include participation of individuals from diverse backgrounds.  Click here for more information.
