Long Beach Options Committee

All Long Beach"cottages" are in FEMA Special Flood Hazard Areas. The front row's VE zone has additional hazards due to storm-induced velocity wave action.

The approved motion for the Long Beach Options Committee as per the amended Article X of the Spring 2021 Town Meeting is as follows:

"The Committee will consider the Town’s options when the current Long Beach leases expire in 2023, with due regard for environmental issues, in particular rising sea levels, and the need to repair or replace the seawall.

The Committee will consider the possible renewal of the Long Beach cottage leases, and also the possible sale of all or portions of the Long Beach property, and the cost, benefits and detriment to the Town of Rockport of all the options considered.  The Committee will hold a public hearing to present a report not later than two weeks prior to the 2022 Annual Town Meeting and the Committee will present [their] report at that meeting.”

We have placed all of our information on a Google Drive for the public to view or download: bit.ly/LongBeachOptions
