Beginnings of a Compo Master Plan Presented
By James Lomuscio
A bathhouse at South Beach. A miniature golf course. Moving the lifeguard station closer to the water and making it two-story. And a shaded promenade next to Joey’s by the Shore to enhance views of Long Island Sound for those heading into Westport’s Compo Beach.
Andy Moss, chair of the Compo Beach Site Improvement Committee, tonight explains some of the ideas under consideration. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
These were just some of the ideas floated at tonight’s Parks & Recreation Commission where commission members—including new chair Charles Haberstroh—and the public heard an update on a master plan presented by the Compo Beach Site Improvement Committee and architects working on the plan.
“Tonight is the first step in a long journey,” Andy Moss, committee chairman and outgoing Parks & Recreation Commission chair, told about 35 persons who had assembled at Town Hall. “Compo Beach has been a town asset for 100 years. It’s both prized and in need of repair.”
Moss stressed that the designs presented were not proposed designs, but works in progress that required more input.
