A Word from Jay...
New Year’s greetings from our new offices in Orleans! For the past 30 years, the CDP occupied office space at the Main Street Mercantile in Eastham. We were fortunate to be centrally located just off Route 6. However, our offices were spread out between two buildings making it difficult for staff from our various departments to informally collaborate and communicate.
For much of the decade that I have led the CDP, it has been my goal to move us into a space that would foster more collaboration between staff. Over the summer we found a buyer for part of our Eastham space and launched a search for new offices. We were fortunate to locate a space in a building on Route 6A at the Orleans-Brewster border and we moved in the first week of December.
Our new offices at 260 Cranberry Highway in Orleans allow all of us to be under one roof. This new space is also designed to accommodate a more modern, post-COVID workplace. With many staff working a combination of remote and in-person work, we are using much less space. We have also installed state-of-the-art video conferencing equipment to support more effective remote and hybrid meetings.
Once we are settled, we plan to hold some open houses to allow our supporters an opportunity to come visit us in the new space. In the meantime, all of us are very much enjoying being in one space and working together more collaboratively. We have an ambitious year ahead of us as we work to build a stronger and more diverse year-round community of people who can afford to live, work and thrive here. I look forward to sharing our challenges and successes. Thanks for helping to make them possible!
