Economic Development

The Economic Development program provides professional staff support to implement the Town’s economic development plan. Specific activities include promoting Hyannis’ revitalization, collaboration with the Hyannis Area and Cape Cod Chambers of Commerce, the Hyannis Main Street Business Improvement District, planning and study initiatives for Route 132 Regional Commercial area and corridor, Hyannis Harbor and Route 28 corridor.


Business Outreach
Through this initiative we learn about the Barnstable business climate and share the Town’s goals and planning initiatives. Most importantly we engage in open and honest discussion about how Barnstable fares at being “Open for Business”. This cornerstone communication strategy is a top priority.


Arts and Culture:
The Harbor Your Arts (HyA) program is a key component of the downtown Hyannis revitalization initiative and has stimulated collateral development on Pearl Street. HyA promotes arts and cultural programs and events throughout the town including performing arts, exhibits, retail space for artists through the artist shanty program and artist live/work space. These arts focused activities attract visitors and residents and enhance their Hyannis experience, provide market opportunities for artists and businesses, support the local creative economy, enhance business activity in Hyannis and continue to define downtown Hyannis as an arts and culture destination.
