White Horse Beach bath house won’t be ready this summer

At its late August meeting, the Manomet Village Steering Committee was told they could expect the bath house at White Horse Beach to be ready by the summer of 2015.

That proved to be optimistic.

Town Manager Melissa Arrighi, in her weekly report to the Board of Selectmen, said that work on the building is now expected to begin in the fall of 2015. The building that now stands on the site the bath house will go is now scheduled for demolition in the spring. Community Preservation Committee Chairman Bill Keohan had told the MVSC that this fall. According to him, permits for its demolition had been issued, but it was decided to keep the house standing this summer since it was being used for storage and as a bathroom for the lifeguards.

Land Management Systems, Arrighi reported, did the PERC test on the property and will design the septic system. Randy Parker, owner of the company, volunteered its services.

The Manomet Village Steering Committee will hold two public hearings on the building’s design.

What is this?
