June in Town From the Desk of Town Manager Libby Gibson.

This month’s “What’s up in Town Admin?” features reminders and information in response to current events and the upcoming summer season:

Beach Issues

Last month I mentioned that pre-season beach preparations were underway. We are providing the Select Board with an update about that at the Board’s June 5, 2019 meeting. We will also be discussing the Town’s readiness regarding sharks. Many towns on the Cape are having similar discussions. Our FY 2020 budget includes funds for anti-theft informational signage that can be posted at public beaches to increase public awareness about the possibility that sharks *may* be in the area.

Nantucket’s lifeguards are:

  • equipped with radios that do not rely on wi-fi cell service and at all lifeguarded beaches they can contact emergency medical services immediately;
  • certified as First Responders who can provide immediate emergency first aid until EMT’s arrive;
  • are trained to look for signs that could indicate the presence of sharks
  • are trained in protocol to notify beach goers if a shark(s) is detected in the swimming area.

Nantucket’s lifeguards are not:

  • able to prevent sharks from entering the swimming area;
  • able to prevent shark attacks from happening.

Town officials have been keeping abreast of what other towns are doing regarding swimmer safety and sharks and participating in meetings. We anticipate that a regional effort is developing that will allow all Cape & Islands coastal towns to share materials, messaging, information, services and possibly equipment that – over time – will help us all better understand where sharks are and possibly be able to deter them from popular swimming areas. However, the reality is that the ocean is a large place, detection technology is not going to guarantee that swimmers will be 100% safe from shark attacks and people need to use their own judgement as to where and when they swim.

Events Coordinator at 508-325-4166. For additional information regarding special events please review the Town's Special Event Policy (PDF). For information regarding conducting private business on any public property, please contact the Town's Licensing Administrator at 508-325-4100 ext. 7319.

To report on a problem at any beach, please use the Town's Beach Hotline at 508-228-7261 24 hours/day; leave a message if an attendant is not available. To report an emergency please call 911.

Dogs

Every so often, the Select Board is presented with a situation involving a nuisance or dangerous dog. We had three of these in May, after years of none. Massachusetts General Law contains provisions specific to how hearings for nuisance or dangerous dogs are to be conducted. To make a long story short, the owners of the dogs in question were issued Orders containing Conditions as to how the dogs are to be confined/restricted going forward. Meanwhile, some reminders for dog owners might be in order:

  • the Town does actually have a “Leash Law”. While its enforcement has historically been less than strict, dog owners need to control their dogs responsibly, especially around children, other dogs, and in crowded areas;
  • Nantucket has a strong dog population and we are lucky to have a lot of beautiful open spaces where we can take our dogs off leash; again, however, be responsible and be sure to have a leash with you at all times and use it to control your dog;
  • dogs are prohibited from areas where endangered species are present – this time of year we have many beach areas where fencing has been erected to protect fragile birds – pay attention to it and do not approach these areas with your dog. In fact, human presence is restricted as well;
  • clean up after your dog! I think we could *mostly* agree that while there may be some off-trail areas where it could be impractical to retrieve your dog’s waste, on the trail/sidewalk/bike path/someone’s yard, is not one of those areas! Starting this year, for a variety of reasons, the Town is no longer providing dog waste bag dispensers at beaches, parks or downtown. Dog owners/walkers need to obtain, use and properly dispose of their own bags. The Town also has a bylaw that allows for fines for animal waste;

Trash

As we approach the summer season, here are some reminders about trash:

  • Town trash barrels are NOT there for individuals’ household or business trash. Too often, the DPW finds bags of personal trash in these barrels which causes overflow, mess, complaints and extra work. Please handle your own trash – as responsible people do – through a commercial hauler or take it to the landfill yourself (it’s not too far away!).
  • starting this summer, the Town is promoting the same “Pack In – Pack Out” policy that the Land Bank and Conservation Foundation have been using. We support the message of the Surfside Association: “Leave Only Footprints”;
  • the Town is encouraging people to focus more on waste stream separation. This is intended to help our composting process be more effective and usable, as well as divert certain types of waste to off-island disposal sites to extend the life of the lined landfill cells where residual materials are placed;
  • business owners are encouraged to clean up around their premises regularly – it’s good for your business, good for the community and allows the DPW to focus on keeping other areas clean;
  • open vehicles taking trash to the landfill, must have secured loads – roadside litter is noticeably absent/reduced when people are properly covering their loads;
  • join the Clean Team! The Clean Team is a group of over 400 hundred Nantucketers which is dedicated to keeping our island's beaches, dunes, roadsides and multi-use paths clean of litter, on Saturdays from 8:00 am to 9:00 am from Daffodil weekend until mid-October. To join the Clean Team send an email to Bill Connell at wconnell@connellandersen.com. The Clean Teamers meet on Saturdays at 8:00 am at the Handlebar Cafe, the schedule for out-of-town locations is:
  1. June 8 - Hummock Pond Road, meet at start of Bartlett Farm Road;
  2. June 15 - Sconset Beach, meet Codfish Park parking area;
  3. June 22 - South Shore, meet end of South Shore Road;
  4. June 29 - Sankaty Beach Club

Retail Businesses

We welcome all our local businesses to Summer 2019 on Nantucket. To make everyone’s summer experience on the Island as pleasant as possible and to maintain the unique character of Nantucket that we all love, here are some reminders if you own or run a business here:

  • The display of merchandise and wares ON your building or on Town-owned street or sidewalk, is prohibited;
  • Please refrain from blocking the sidewalk around your business in any way, including display of merchandise, staff, customer queue, signs, furniture, etc.;
  • Signs must have the approval of the Historic District Commission;
  • Video screens are not allowed in window areas;
  • “Giveaways” are somewhat restricted and subject to a bit of discretion: please do not try to rub lotion on people or spray them with perfume; do not hand out alcoholic beverages of any kind; do not hand out leaflets or other material that is going to end up on the sidewalk – it’s best to hand out your “giveaways” IN your store; we ask that our residents and visitors be respected and that retail business staff refrain from solicitation or any activity that invades personal space;
  • Service of alcohol in connection with a special event in your store requires a permit – contact Licensing Office Marina Dzvonik at mdzvonik@police.nantucket-ma.gov for information on this. If you are not sure, just ask. In the case where you are proposing something that may be restricted by regulations, we may be able to help you find an alternative solution. Having the conversation prior to launching into something saves time and aggravation for all.

Let’s work together to provide the best experience for our visitors and residents and a prosperous season for our businesses.

Bikes

We love our bikes! Bikes are a great way to get around the island for work, leisure time, sightseeing and exercise, Nantucket has bike and/or multi-use paths on most of its major roadways; as well as short and long-term plans for more. We have a lot of narrow streets here and a lot of driveway and roadway crossings over bike paths – bikers, pedestrians and drivers must pay attention to each other and be responsible when interacting. The Town is making a concerted and on-going effort to brush cut at all intersections where site lines could be impaired; however, when coming upon any intersection or crossing, whether on a bike, walking/running, or driving – please be alert to your surroundings! Some reminders:

  • Sidewalks: bikes are not allowed to be ridden on the sidewalk. We know it’s tempting, especially along a cobblestone street, please do not do it;
  • One-way: please do not ride your bike the wrong way on a one-way street; again, it’s tempting because there are seemingly so many one-way streets, please do not do it;
  • Lights:

Massachusetts General Law C.85 s.11B (9) requires you to have a light on your bike when riding at night/in the dark; plus, it’s smart and safe;

- Helmet: while bike helmets are not required for persons over 12, again, it’s smart – you don’t want to regret not having worn a helmet.

- Right of Way: believe it or not – bikes do not always have the “Right of Way” when crossing streets. Bikers need to pay attention to the Rules of the Road (ie, stop at Stop signs; yield at Yield signs; travel the proper direction – with traffic, etc); however, if a biker is in the middle of a crossing – a vehicle must stop to let them across;

  • Bike Paths: despite the presence of a bike path, sometimes bikers choose not to use the bike path. This is not illegal. These tend to be “serious” bikers (we have a lot of them) and it is actually safer for the serious biker to be on the road not the bike path because of slower moving “traffic” on the bike path. Please be courteous to them and Share the Road!
  • E-bikes: e-bikes seem to be a growing trend. Currently, they are allowed on bike paths at speeds of less than 20 mph. Technically, no motorized vehicles are allowed on the paths. So any motor, electric or gas, is prohibited. We have heard some concerns about this and the Town’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee is reviewing the possibility of local regulations for e-bikes.

The Town encourages biking for health, environmental, traffic reduction and other reasons. We are a bike-friendly community and ask that drivers, pedestrians and bikers all please be alert to and courteous with each other. As the bumper sticker says “Slow Down – You’re Already on Nantucket”!

Coastal Resilience Workshop

The end of June will have groups of state and national experts on the Island for three days of workshops focused on Coastal Resilience planning.

Wednesday, June 26th is the 2019 Nantucket Coastal Conference being held at the Atheneum on India St. This is a full-day of presentations and dialogue about coastal resilience and hazard planning along with sessions dedicated to impacts to shellfish, and coastal stability of marshes and banks.

Commencing Wednesday evening, and continuing through Friday, is the workshop Keeping History Above Water: Nantucket. Thursday's program includes presentations on current activities on Nantucket and case studies of the successes and lessons of other historic coastal communities. Friday’s workshop includes a closer look at future conditions on Nantucket and showcasing the project Resilient Nantucket: 3D Digital Documentation and Sea Level Rise Visualization. This is a project funded with a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management and includes work done by the University of Florida Historic Preservation Program to develop 3D models of future storm and high-water conditions of the downtown area. The Friday afternoon session includes a facilitated round table discussion to discuss vulnerabilities and propose solutions for the community to consider.

The Wednesday evening keynote speaker is Jeff Goodell, author of The Water Will Come: Rising Seas, Sinking Cities, and the Remaking of the Civilized World. Donovan Rypkema, a preservation economics expert, will give a special presentation during Friday's workshop.

The Wednesday evening talk with Jeff Goodell is open to the public, and no registration is required. The daytime conference sessions require registration since space is limited. More information can be found here:

Birds of Nantucket series

An introduction to the birds of Nantucket. The description explains and outlines the features and characteristics of each species to help with identification. The ecology section describes the feeding and nesting of each species. The Nantucket section explains where on Nantucket each bird species might be found and gives local habitats that they prefer or good places to look for a particular species. A helpful photograph of each bird is also shown along with the scientific name of each bird, and if the bird is protected by either Massachusetts state or the Federal government or both.

There are over 120 birds listed here from regularly occurring birds to rarely sighted birds, however, this is not an exhaustive list. More species will be added from time to time. Suggestions are welcome. Please email vmurphy@nantucket-ma.gov to suggest more species to describe.

Welcome Newest Town Employees!

Haley Clinton

Haley Clinton just graduated Summa Cum Laude from Florida Atlantic University's Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College with a degree in Marine Biology. Haley was born in South Florida and has wanted to study Marine Biology for as long as she can remember. This summer season, Haley will be interning in the Nantucket Shellfish Hatchery. In September 2019, she will travel to Greece for a 10 week internship program in a microplastics laboratory. Haley is most excited about learning how a small community like Nantucket organizes such an amazing shellfish recycling program and seeing oyster spawning first hand, especially after just completing her undergraduate thesis on the "Health and Distribution of Oysters at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park".

Marissa Scricco

Marissa is a rising junior at the University of Maine, studying Marine Science. Marissa has always felt drawn to the ocean, although she grew up in the town of Shrewsbury, MA, she and her family used to spend summers in South Dennis, Mass. Marissa feels her love of the sea started in South Dennis and continued to grow as she sailed with her grandparents on their 47 foot sailboat to places like Hadley's Harbor, Chuttyhunk, and even beautiful Nantucket Island. She has always dreamt to live and work with such amazing community on the island, doing what she loves. Marissa says "I am not only excited, but feel so blessed to get the opportunity to learn more about my field as I intern with the Nantucket Shellfish Hatchery, and quite literally get my “feet wet,” with this amazing experience in summer of 2019."

Police Awards

At the May 15th Select Board meeting, Police Chief William Pittman presented service awards to members of the force.

From left to right: Lt. Angus MacVicar, Officer Richard Harrington, Sgt. Dan Furtado, Officer Amanda Schwenk, Phil Hubbard, VIP, Officer John Muhr, Detective Chris Kelly, Sgt. John Rockett, Police Chief William Pittman.

Detective Christopher Kelly

Detective Kelly along with several members of the Nantucket Fire Department have been offering “Stop the Bleed” training to other public safety personnel and members of the general public.

The “Stop the Bleed” campaign was initiated by a federal interagency workgroup convened by the National Security Council Staff and the White House. The purpose of the campaign is to build national resilience by better preparing the public to save lives by raising awareness of basic actions to stop life threatening bleeding following everyday emergencies as well as man-made and natural disasters. So far nearly one hundred (100) members of the Nantucket community have been provided this training.

Detective Kelly has been recognized as a positive trainer and good ambassador for this department. His dedication and performance are above and beyond what is expected of him and his involvement and dedication in this community initiative has greatly contributed to the mission, goals and objectives of the Nantucket Police Department.

Prior Awards: 2015 Meritorious Service Award; 2017 Life Saving Award.

Phil Hubbard, VIP

Phil was recognized for his work as a member of the Department's Volunteer in Police Service (VIP) program. Phil was one of the first members of the community to join the program when it began in 2011. He typically works every Friday morning greeting island residents with a smile and professional demeanor. He has built trust with the staff of the Department as well as the community we serve.

Since he started as a volunteer in 2011 Phil has worked 1,030+ hours which is the equivalent of $27,122 in staff time. While on shift Phil has worked on several programs to include the department Telephone Reassurance Program. This program provides an opportunity for elderly and disabled members of the community to call into the police department every day and have a conversation with a staff member letting us know if they are having any trouble. If a person is signed up for the program and they don’t call in during their appointed time an effort is made to contact them to insure that they are ok. Phil also works on our Closed Case Evaluation program by contacting victims of closed cases to see if they have any more information that perhaps they had forgotten when they filed their initial report.

Phil was awarded the “Public Service Award” In recognition of his participation in the Volunteer in Policing Service Program as a member of the public who has provided outstanding assistance to the Department and has contributed significantly to public safety in our community.

Sergeant Dan Furtado, Sergeant John Rocket, Detective Robert Hollis, Detective Jackie Mason, Officer Michael Mastriano, Officer Amanda Schwenk, Officer Richard Harrington, Officer John Muhr

This award recognized the tremendous work performed by these officers as part of the department’s Field Training Program. Over the past couple of years the department has hired and trained thirteen (13) new student police officers to fill vacancies created by new positions and resignations.

As members of the Field Training Unit, these officers were responsible to provide a minimum of fourteen (14) weeks of intense one-on-one training following the student officers graduation from the State sponsored 20 week long police officer basic training program. The Field Training Program is designed to insure that a police officer is afforded hands on task specific training unique to our community. This training is intense and stressful for both the student officer and the Field Training Staff. These Officers insured that all tasks were accomplished, evaluations completed and ultimately made and defended a recommendation on whether or not a student officer should be retained and granted solo patrol status.

Service in the Field Training Unit during this period was in addition to the officer’s normal duties as Patrol Officers or Patrol Sergeants. They performed these duties without benefit of additional compensation. What motivated them was their understanding that a well-trained officer is essential for the safety of all officers, a successful police department and a safe community.

In recognition of this exemplary teamwork which was superior to which is normally expected the Field Training Unit is being awarded the “Chiefs Unit Award”. This award recognizes outstanding performance of duty, demonstrated by members of the unit as a team rather than as individuals.

Prior Awards:

  • Sgt. Dan Furtado: 2011 Life Saving Award; 2016 Public Safety Service Award
  • Off. Richard Harrington: 2015 Letter of Commendation
  • Det. Jacquelyn Mason: 2017 Life Saving Award
  • Off. John Muhr: 2015 Letter of Commendation
  • Sgt. John Rockett: 2015 Life Saving Award
  • Off. Amanda Schwenk: 2017 Significant Event Commendation

Energy Office Updates

Offshore Wind News

As many of you know, the Town of Nantucket has been participating in an ongoing consultation process with the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management, or BOEM, on the proposed construction of an offshore windfarm by energy development company Vineyard Wind, LLC. Vineyard Wind has proposed to install 84 turbines between Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard by 2020. We have been working in good faith with BOEM and Vineyard Wind to find a responsible way to do this.

To set the record straight, the Town has never been opposed to renewable energy. In fact, Nantucket’s Select Board is enthusiastic about its potential benefits. But we do not believe that to enjoy renewable energy a community must necessarily sacrifice its cultural heritage or historic assets. If a renewable energy project does impact a community's historic resources and the economy tied to those resources, the community is entitled to a complete understanding and full mitigation of those impacts. Likewise, it is important to remember that our Nantucket Historic District, which includes Nantucket Island as well Tuckernuck and Muskeget Islands, is a National Historic Landmark. What this means is that Nantucket deserves special protection under a federal law passed by Congress in 1966 called Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. This law is designed to serve a stop, look, and listen function so that the public understands the effects of federally permitted or funded projects on historic resources. If harm will occur, then Congress requires that consultation continue with the federal agencies in charge of permitting and Vineyard Wind as the permit applicant. Finally, because Nantucket is a National Historic Landmark, another special law known as Section 110(f) requires that the federal agency—prior to granting any permit—use all possible planning to minimize harm.

Massachusetts Offshore Wind Project Areas.

Unfortunately, some of those who support Vineyard Wind’s project—the first of four planned lease areas off the coast of our islands that have already been approved by the federal government for additional wind farm development—have tried to pit those who care about protecting Nantucket’s historic character viewsheds against clean energy supporters. This is a false choice. Historic preservation and clean energy are not mutually exclusive. We have never taken that position. Nevertheless, Nantucket deserves more care than it has received.

To ensure that the residents of Nantucket's rights under federal historic preservation law are fully respected, the Town has engaged legal counsel who are among the foremost attorneys in this complex area of law. Marion Werkheiser of Cultural Heritage Partners, a law firm dedicated exclusively to historic preservation and cultural heritage, and her team will help the Select Board make sure that Nantucket’s concerns are heard by BOEM and that the consultation process required by the National Historic Preservation Act isn’t rushed or incomplete. Will Cook, former Associate General Counsel to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is also assisting.

To be clear: The Town is not trying to slow down BOEM’s review of Vineyard Wind’s permit application, but we have a duty to make sure that BOEM and Vineyard Wind work with us in good faith to find reasonable ways to avoid, minimize, or mitigate harm that BOEM has determined that Nantucket Historic District will incur. If an energy developer and federal agencies timely fulfill their legal and regulatory responsibilities with respect to a Town's cultural resources, an energy project can be completed on time. It is the duty of the Nantucket Select Board to look out for the interests of our residents and ensure that any project, however promising, is done right.

To this end, we have already assisted BOEM in the identification of historic resources, suggested possible mitigation measures—including a community benefit fund—participated in BOEM consultation meetings, and submitted official comments to BOEM from our attorneys outlining our concerns with the permit review process, including how to address the harmful effects to and from Nantucket’s historic viewshed. At the same time, we will continue to work with BOEM and Vineyard Wind to find creative ways to balance wind energy with our preservation goals. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Energy Coordinator Lauren Sinatra at lsinatra@nantucket-ma.gov.

Sun Safety Advice from the Health Department

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, sunburns are a significant risk factor for skin cancer. Massachusetts as a whole is ranked 9th in the United States for rates of new melanoma cases, based on EPA findings. Specifically, Nantucket is ranked 5th in the United States for new cases of melanoma, the current rate being 146% higher than the national average.

Because of these findings, it is very important to take sun safety seriously on the island. Here are some simple steps to help reduce your risk of getting skin cancer:

  • Make sure to use sunscreen! Apply before you go to the beach or any other outdoor activity and reapply throughout the day. It is recommended to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Cover up with hats, sunglasses, towels, blankets, and use umbrellas when exposed to lots of sun.
  • Between the hours of 10am and 4pm, when the UV rays are usually the strongest, go to shaded areas when possible.
  • Avoid getting burns, do so by applying sunscreen regularly when outside.
  • Even on cloudy days, be sure to apply the proper amount of sunscreen.

Sun burns are caused by exposure UV rays that are present in sunlight. It is very important to prevent overexposure to both sunlight and sunburns. This is the best way to reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. Children are especially susceptible to overexposure, so make sure to take extra precaution in protecting them from sun burns.

Nantucket Public Schools Welcomes Deputy Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Hallett
