We hope this finds you and your family well.
Hard to believe Summer 2020 is over. It has brought such disruption and challenge, but has also been a season of community.
With all Parks & Recreation Meetings cancelled this year due to Covid-19 issues, we have had nothing to report out from Town Hall.
We are happy to know that our town managed well through this crisis. Reflecting on all of the uncertainty, and changing information, not to mention the unprecedented set of challenges faced, we are grateful to the Parks & Recreation team and the town for managing through all of this as it relates specifically to Compo Beach so well, with as few bumps as possible.
Since 2017, we have been delighted to provide a forum to collect your input on the conditions at the beach and communicate it to our town representatives in order to address the issues that had emerged that summer, which now seems so long ago.
We believe it is now time to "sunset" this initiative. September 2020 we will distribute our final email, our social sites and website will close at the end of the month. We thank you for all of your feedback and support, We encourage everyone to stay active in the community, to subscribe to the official Parks & Recreation social channels, and to attend as many town meetings as you can once they resume.
Wishing you much health, happiness, and endless long walks at Compo Beach,
Friends of Compo Beach

No! Compo Beach is a big revenue generator for the Town. It has not had enough of that revenue put back into it in the past to maintain it properly and it has been over stressed to generate even more revenue. We need to speak up and provide feedback ongoing.
