Access to the ocean for fishing, aquaculture, recreational boating, and transportation of people, freight, and vehicles is essential to our survival; such access will diversify our economy and reinforce the need to develop a workforce to match. Likewise, we must protect the area from the impacts of sea level rise and climate change, the impacts of which are already being felt during storms and high tide events.
This project will engage property owners, waterfront users, community members, and other partners from the community and the State in order to work on a re-design of the waterfront. The Town is seeking funding for the project through grants. We received a $10,000 ShoreUp grant from the Island Institute to kick-off the project, which will help us engage an engineering firm and being preliminary engagement and idea generation.
We have also applied for a $200,000 Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant through FEMA. We will hear back in early fall of 2023 about this grant.
