Cape Cod boasts a thriving arts and culture business. According to a recent report by the Cape Cod Economic Development Council:
“The arts and culture cluster is on the threshold of becoming a critical and emerging industry for the region and for this reason it warrents a targeted economic development initiative.”
Dennis Port’s excellent mid-Cape and seaside location on Route 28 and close access to the mid-Cape highway positions the village for potential in the arts and culture cluster. An arts and culture center in Dennis Port could benefit from the expanded summer population looking for entertainment nearby. Responsible integration of an arts and culture center in Dennis Port would include consideration of other issues such as public safety, wastewater and transportation. Dennis Port has the added benefit of bordering West Harwich lending itself to partnering opportunities.
