Issue No. 9: The Town and School annual budget, Charter amendments, and Phase 2 of the Wastewater Plan—sewers for 481 properties near Meetinghouse Pond and a "Betterment Bylaw" that would charge them 20 percent of the $33 million cost—are just a few of the important issues before voters.
Issue No.8: Voters approve universal preschool, a new parking lot at Nauset Beach, dredging of Rock Harbor, and a feasibility study for a new fire station—though the discussion has wild twists and turns.
Issue No.6: We explore the Cape’s housing crisis, as it applies to Orleans. We offer housing stats, and explain what the term “affordable housing” means and describe projects in the works. Beyond housing, we explore the concept of living “affordably” in Orleans might mean.
Issue No.3: A “deep dive” into the proposed Nauset Regional School District building project, in preparation for the March 30th vote.
