I am writing in support of article 26 on the October 21 Special Town Meeting warrant as written.
Mashpee, and Cape Cod overall, has a drastic shortage of one- and two-bedroom units that the backbone of our economy needs in order to afford to live here. Accessory dwelling units are one solution to this problem.
Mashpee has positioned itself as a welcoming town for young people and families with investments in the schools, recreation, libraries, town events and Mashpee Commons. Let’s keep the positive momentum going. Accessory dwelling units will increase the supply of available market rate units without developing more land, harming water quality, or ruining the character of our community.
