Town Meeting approved funding for us to undertake a comprehensive look at Sesuit Harbor, the state of the capital facilities serving the harbor and harbor/town marina operations. This project got underway in July. Our consultants are compiling data and looking for input from the public. We have scheduled a set of listening sessions for August 19th at the Dennis Yacht Club. These sessions are targeted to get input from three distinct cross-sections of the population as follows:
1. Recreational users (slip and mooring holders at Municipal Marina and Northside, Sesuit Boat Owners’s Association, Dennis Yacht Club, ramp users)
2. Commercial users (Northside Marina, commercial fishing interests/aquaculture, charter fishing boats, Sesuit Harbor Café, Lobster Roll, Dennis Parasail, jetski rentals, other tour boats and head boats)
3. Residents and abutters (Sesuit/Quivet Neck Property Owners Associations, other residents of Dennis/East Dennis/Sesuit Neck)
Each group of stakeholders will hear a brief presentation outlining project goals followed by our soliciting your comments about the harbor. The consultants are also considering distributing a questionnaires and/or an online survey with specific questions we are seeking input on.
The sessions on August 19th will be:
3:30-4:30 Recreational users
5:00-6:00 Commercial users
6:30-7:30 Residents and abutters
We encourage your participation in the appropriate session.
