Barnstable County is working for you.

Chairman’s Message

Welcome to Barnstable County!

The 15 communities of Cape Cod are connected by more than the geography of this beautiful peninsula. Together they celebrate a shared history, a shared culture, and a shared vision. Cape Cod is a special place, requiring special protection and special services managed cooperatively for the benefit of each community.

This website provides access to the many services provided by Barnstable County, services that help make the quality of life on Cape Cod as special as it is. I invite you to visit each County Department’s individual websites to learn more about their programs and active roles within our communities, as well as, visiting links to each town, visitor information sites and many other sites of interest.

Barnstable County is proud to focus attention on regional issues and resources that impact our coastal waters, environment, and public health and safety. We work hard to develop programs to educate and inform our residents on conserving energy, food safety and nutrition, recycling and household hazardous products (just to name a few).

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We encourage you to take advantage of the services that Barnstable County has to offer!
