As part of the Town of Barnstable’s Comprehensive Wastewater Management Plan (CWMP), and subject to approval by the Barnstable Town Council, the Town is seeking Legislative approval to remove land which is subject to Article 97 of the Amendments to the Massachusetts Constitution from Mother’s Park, Centerville, in order to make safety alterations to the intersection of Phinney’s Lane and North Main Street, Centerville. The Town plans to discontinue Mother’s Park Road as a public way, use part of it for a new underground sewer pump station, and add the remainder of the discontinued roadway to Mother’s Park as replacement land. If approved, the Park will actually increase in size by about 3,485 square feet. In accordance with M.G.L. c. 3, sec. 5A, the Public Lands Preservation Act, the required alternatives analysis as well as the notice provided to the Commonwealth’s Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs on April 14, 2023 (without attachments) can be found linked below.

A public comment period will remain open until close of business on Monday, May 15, 2023. Please submit your comments to Kelly Collopy, Communications Manager, at the Barnstable Department of Public Works, at
