PROJECT : Dennisport Village Zoning


Dennisport Village Zoning

  • CATEGORY :
  • LOCATION : Dennisport, Cape Cod Massachusetts
  • DATE : Completed in 2004 by Kate Kennen during a Whitlock Internship with the Association to Preserve Cape Cod

For several years, Dennis residents rejected a proposed smart growth zoning by-law to increase the height of buildings in downtown Dennisport from 1 to 3 stories. Potential height, setback and density options were tested in 3D models to determine appropriate guidelines.



Photo-realistic visualizations and shadow studies were created utilizing FormZ to help the community understand alternative density and design guideline options. The new village zoning by-law allowing 3 stories was overwhelmingly passed at town meeting; a great victory for compact, environmentally sensitive development.  The project paved the way for other Cape towns to follow suit.
