Update on Plowing Status for Popponesset Roads:
All road work is complete and all Popponesset roads have been approved for the town's plowing list this winter, per inspection Thursday by Mashpee DPW.
On Wednesday 10/30 work will begin on the paving project on Wading Place Road. Paving will take place from the Triangle, on Red Brook Road up to the split on Wading Place. Traffic will have to be detoured down Rock Landing Road through High Wood for the day. This project should take no longer than a day. Wednesday will be milling and prepping (limited traffic) and Thursday will be paving (detour for about 3-4 hours)
Questions should be directed to the Peninsula Council or Jonathan Croft of Lawrence Lynch at 508-364-1826
Update on Proposed Flood Zones and Premium Hikes 10.28.13
Looks like there's a push to pause the rezoning and premium hikes to give more time for an affordability assessment.
Read link below:
The PBA board had put effort against postponing the implementation of the new flood zone maps. Most of Popponesset has now been included in the proposed new flood zones, which will dramatically increase insurance costs if a resident has a mortgage on his or her property. The board has been talking to engineers about reviewing the flood maps for our community, but argued there simply was not time to perform a thorough review before the maps would be implemented under the original proposed start. PBA has been discussing the matter with the Mashpee Board of Selectman. Enclosed is a copy of a letter the board sent to Mike Richardson of the Board. We will continue to follow this issue. You can contact your congressman and urge revision of these maps.
New Flood Zones Proposed: will require flood insurance for many more Popponesset Homeowners

HARBOR MASTER CALLS FOR
ALL BOATS TO BE REMOVED FROM BEACH
Harbor Master, Steve Mone has requested that all homeowners with sailfish and/ or small boats that are still on the beaches of Popponesset be taken in for the winter. Unattended, they become a navigation hazard as they drift out during storms and high tides and are the responsibilities of the owners.
POPPONESSET PLOW ROADS
update as of 10.28.13
All roads will be plowable. There should be no issues for any streets in Popponesset to be plowed in the Winter.
Here's what happened: An article recently appeared in the local newspaper, including some Popponesset Streets on a DO NOT PLOW List. The town of Mashpee did the assessment of the roads before the PBA hired contractor did the trimming it usually does at the end of summer. The PBA roads team and DPW have been in touch but the town did the assessment and published the list as it stands right now prior to the trimming happening. It will be updated once the trimming is done, which is scheduled for this week. We had a good deal of growth this year and roads that didn't have any overhang or issues in the past had a few areas needing trimming so that it's passable for plows in the winter.
