Dogs at the Beach Hot Topic

Westport resident Barbara Paul (l) tells the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) Parks and Recreation Committee Monday night why she is opposed to efforts to relax rules regarding dogs off-leash at Compo Beach before 9 a.m. during the winter months. The committee, during a three and a half hour meeting, voted 4-3 to recommend the full RTM reject the proposal at its Sept. 7 meeting. However, it voted 4-3 to recommend approval of another proposal allowing dogs in cars in the Soundview Drive parking lot at all times except between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays during the summer season. photo

  1. Mr. Joseloff:

    Your website has quickly become required reading for all Westport residents, particularly those interested in the important issues of the day. The reporting is first rate and the pictures (as in the case of last evening’s RTM Parks and Recreation Committee meeting) often tell the story themselves. We particularly enjoy the striking photos of the Compo Beach area.

    Thanks for keeping us informed and entertained.

    I would like to put in a plug for a new website launched by the Compo Beach Improvement Association and designed to promote the beauty and safety of Westport’s most important natural resource – Compo Beach.

    The website, while targetting members of the Compo Beach Improvement Association, is accessible by all and open to suggestions! Websurfers can find us at and are encouraged to let us know what you think and what you would like to see.

    Many thanks.
