The Community Development function is vital to support the Board of Selectmen's stated mission to improve the quality of life for Rockport residents by providing services, facilities, and opportunities that will make living in this beautiful Town an enriching experience.

The key goal of Community Development is to be proactive in shaping the future of Rockport while preserving and enhancing the Town's character. This function supports the diversity of Rockport's people, cultures, and natural resources. It fosters the unique character of our residents, neighborhoods, and the strengths of our community spirit as expressed in our history, our culture, and our deep sense of civic engagement.

The components of this department include the Office of Fair Housing, the Office of Economic Development and Sustainability, the Office of Culture and Tourism, Public Parking and Transportation, and Environment and Land Use.
