BARNSTABLE —

Barnstable has been chosen as one of 11 towns to receive the Massachusetts  Public Health Association’s Healthy by Design Community Leadership Award.  According to Town Manager Thomas Lynch, “The award is in recognition of Main  Street Hyannis’s adoption of flexible zoning changes that promote mixed-use  development while preserving historical character, and for streetscape  improvements that encourage walking and provide a link from downtown Hyannis to  Hyannis Harbor.”

The award will be presented at an event at the State House in Boston on Oct.  9.
