The intent of the audit was to continue discussions on growth and development patterns - discussions that had already begun through a series of workshops in early 2004. The Growth Management Audit is modeled on the Vision 2020 audit form (see above) and tailored to meet the needs of the local communities on Cape Cod. The audit process allowed communities to understand what policies were impacting their development projects, a way to gather and organize information on what policies were not working, and it afforded each town a way to examine a range of policies may work in their own communities.
