Lowes

Concerned About Lowe's Coming to South Dennis

Here's what you can do

     Your opinion makes a REAL difference re: whether or not Lowe's comes to the Cape. This project is      
    considered a Development of Regional Impact, or DRI, so the opinions of all Cape residents matter,      
    regardless of where you live


   The Cape Cod Commission will make the decision to approve or deny Lowe's application. The
   commission takes public input on projects seriously. They also give consideration to the positions
   of town officials and community organizations.

 You can help stop Lowe's from coming to our area by doing one or more of the following:


 I.          WRITE TO THE BOARD MEMBERS AND SENIOR STAFF MEMBERS OF THE CAPE COD
               COMMISSION.

                         
     Send one letter requesting to be notified of all public hearings on Lowe's, and a seprate
      letter stating why you are opposed to it.  ( See attached sample letter)
