Selectmen's Meeting

Please attend*, we need as much support as possible to save our beach!

We need to present a strong interest from all of our residents, requesting approval from the town to:

 
  1. Add sand to replenish the existing 250 feet of SSAI beach

  2. Replace impervious hardscape on the east end of Bayside Drive East with grass/plantings/sand which will improve drainage and protect coastal boundary

  3. Build a new pathway to the beach using environmentally approved materials to mitigate erosion, ensure public access and safe handicap access. Ensure width and surfacing allows for emergency and construction vehicles.

  4. Add new signage on beach channel

  5. Total Cost for Seacoast Shores Association: $80,000.00

  6. Cost to Town of Falmouth: $0.00
