Falmouth is one of the largest towns on the Cape. Like Sandwich and Bourne, Falmouth was formed by a different glacier than the glacier whose melting created the towns farther out on the Cape. Falmouth has one of the longest coastlines of any town in the Commonwealth, which creates beautiful harbors and areas with extraordinary water views.

Town agencies including the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Conservation Commission, the Department of Natural Resources, Shellfish Warden, Harbormaster and the Board of Selectmen are very attentive to the environmental demands of that coastline.

The town has set aside large geographical tracts of land for public conservation, including waterfront, woodland, and back land areas that are the natural habitat for wildlife. Falmouth tries to retain attractiveness in the face of growth pressure. (Narrative in part courtesy of the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.)
