Tisbury seeks input on future of waterways

A new survey asks questions about Vineyard Haven Harbor and the town's other waterways. — Stacey Rupolo

The Tisbury waterways and harbor planning committee has developed an online survey to get the community’s thoughts and opinions on the present and future of the town’s waterways and waterfront. Input is being sought from waterway users, residents, and businesses in the community.

The survey asks questions about use of Vineyard Haven Harbor, the Lagoon, and Lake Tashmoo. It also asks respondents to rate the level of services and amenities such as parking, restrooms, and public open spaces. A different section asks what should be allowed on the waterways, and includes questions about houseboats and floating businesses.

The survey is available at bit.ly/tisburywaterways. Physical copies of the survey are also available at:

  • Town Hall, 51 Spring Street
  • Town Hall Annex, 66 High Point Lane
  • Tisbury Public Library, 200 Main Street
  • Harbormaster’s Office, 19 Owen Park Street

Participation in the survey is voluntary, and responses will be kept confidential, according to the town. Friday, Feb. 16, is the deadline to respond. For information on accessing the site or completing the survey, contact Alexandra Kral at 508-696-4202 or akral@tisburyma.gov.
