Cottages Being Razed on National Seashore
March 19, 2012
CapeCodOnline: On a day with blue skies and a light wind, the heavy equipment arrived on North Beach Island in Chatham this morning, as the National Park Service prepares to raze five cottages it owns starting this afternoon or early tomorrow morning.
The five federally owned cottages are slated for demolition because they are at risk of being washed away, according to Cape Cod National Seashore Superintendent George Price. Tearing them down now rather than later will save taxpayer money and protect the public and the environment, he has said.
The first loaded barge arrived around 7:30 a.m. today. The heavier 60-foot barge loaded with dumpsters for demolition debris arrived around 10:30 a.m. escorted by two tugs and a fishing boat.
