Orleans RESET Design

The Town of Orleans Planning Board requested assistance from the Cape Cod Commission to complete an initial land use and streetscape evaluation of the Route 6A corridor relative to the land use and economic development goals of the Orleans Local Comprehensive Plan.

The Regional Economic Strategy Executive Team (RESET) process is part of the implementation strategy for the Cape Cod Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS). RESET is a partnership between the Cape Cod Commission and the Cape Cod Economic Development Council; these partners established RESET to provide targeted, town-specific technical assistance. 

The RESET process is designed to achieve creative and robust solutions by mixing the ideas of a multidisciplinary team with wide expertise. Different perspectives are respected and desired. Commission staff members with policy, planning, regulatory, and technical expertise each bring their unique perspectives and information to the table to provide specific, tangible deliverables — site plans, research reports, land use planning, recommended changes to bylaws, and more — that are tailored to the needs of a specific town client. RESET involves town staff and elected officials (or other client groups) directly and collaboratively in the planning and work environment.
