About Falmouth, MA
2007 Population: 31,531
Falmouth is a large town geographically, and probably has one of the
longest coastlines in the State. Consequently, there is a lot of land development with high value, high demand, and the choice views that create real property wealth.
There is a lot of very attractive development in the Falmouth community, because people have the money to invest in those waterfront or water-view properties.
same time, Falmouth has a lot of agencies that are very attentive to the environmental demands of that coastline, whether it be the Planning Board, the Zoning
Board of Appeals, the Conservation Commission, the Department of Natural Resources, Shellfish Warden, Harbormaster and the Board of Selectmen.
geographical tracts of Falmouth land have been set aside for public conservation, not necessarily exclusively waterfront, but some of the woodland and back land areas that
are the natural habitat for wildlife and are locations that also serve to enhance the attractiveness of the community. Falmouth, like every community tries to retain
attractiveness in the face of growth pressure.
