    The Barnstable Youth Commission is hosting its 10th Annual Substance Abuse Prevention Forum on Thursday Night November 9th at 5:30 PM at the Barnstable Adult Community Center. The forum is intended for parents to learn current information about drugs in our public schools. The event will include members of the Barnstable Police Department telling attendees about the devices being used, and the national trends in drug use in schools. The Hidden in Plain Sight trailer will be at BACC on the 9th. The trailer is designed to look like a modern teenager’s room while highlighting all the places teens can hide illicit substances, weapons, and anything else they don’t want parents to find. Lastly, we will be welcoming the Mass. Behavioral Hotline to the event to speak to parents about the resources available to them if they have concerns about their child. We hope you can join us.

  • Barnstable Local Comprehensive Planning Committee: Seeking New Members

    The town is seeking new Local Comprehensive Planning Committee members as we have had a few members step down. The current Local Comprehensive Planning Committee (LCPC) is comprised of representatives of all seven villages and members of several Town Boards and Committees.

    The Town Manager is seeking to appoint additional members to the Local Comprehensive Planning Committee as it begins phase two of the planning process. The Town is looking to diversify representation on the Committee to ensure the Committee’s makeup is reflective of the community’s population and is therefore seeking applications, particularly from people of color, people with disabilities, and people whose first language is not English.
