About Mashpee Commons by Design

Whether it’s the annual Halloween & Christmas parades that bring in the holiday spirit, or the farmer’s markets and local performances that attract visitors from across the region, Mashpee Commons is a special place for many.

The restaurants, shops, and residents that call the Commons home help make it a hub for community activities and economic development in Mashpee. We want to improve and grow Mashpee Commons so more great stories can be created.

But we stand at a crossroads in being able to expand the Commons in the way that Mashpee residents have come to know and love.

Mashpee’s current zoning regulations present many obstacles that make it challenging to continue to build this community asset.

As we work with town stakeholders to build the Mashpee Commons master plan, we want to hear your ideas for what Mashpee Commons needs in the future. What is it missing? What do you want to see in the parks, squares, and plazas? What would make the new neighborhoods expanding from Mashpee Commons great places too?

Mashpee Commons by Design is a community-based planning process that will collect the best ideas and incorporate them into our master plan.

Join us to Design the Future of Mashpee Commons

We’re hosting a series of public workshops and meetings as a part of Mashpee Commons by Design to hear your ideas on what you would like to see in our future plans. Want to see more space for children to play? Think there should be more trees in the streetscape? Think there should be more economic development and housing opportunities in the Commons? Join us and share your ideas!

Public Meetings & Workshops:

Community Forum: Creating Municipal Value Through Design (tentatively scheduled for mid-October, details will be announced soon)


We know that the best ideas come when we open up the planning process to the public.

By incorporating your input, Mashpee Commons will continue to be a treasured community asset for generations to come.
