The goal of this project was to perform a buildout analysis for the Town of Nantucket that could inform the Master Plan in 2020/2021. The analysis is based off current zoning, wetlands, and other land use criteria. To realize this goal, the team acquired the town’s assessor, GIS, and building permit data. This data was analyzed using Microsoft Excel and ArcGIS Pro. The tables, maps, and graphs produced from the data resulted in the current day depiction of residential dwellings and parcels and three different buildout scenarios: a hypothetical maximum residential buildout scenario, a high residential dwelling growth scenario for 2030, and a low residential dwelling growth scenario for 2030.
