Chilmark Residents Approve Menemsha Dock Plans

The Vineyard Gazette reports that Chilmark residents have approved a plan that calls for a new “yacht dock” (the transient dock) with a fixed wooden pier for the first 60’ and floating concrete docks surfaced with wood planking for the remaining 180’. New handicapped access ramps will be built to accommodate wheelchair accessibility. A new 40’ fixed wooden fuel dock was also approved as part of the plans.

Selectman Bill Rossi said the project was in keeping with the town’s master plan, which calls for keeping the fishing village a working fishing port and maintaining the visual character.

No additional recreational slips will be added.
