Metro commission looking for public beach feedback
BOSTON (AP) — The Metropolitan Beaches Commission is gathering more feedback on how to improve the region’s public beaches.
The state legislature formed the body in 2006 to take an in-depth look at beaches that the Department of Conservation and Recreation manages in Nahant, Lynn, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull.
The commission is holding public meetings to look at impacts of the reforms and recommendations from its first report, and to make recommendations for more progress.
They held a meeting Monday in Boston, and have another public hearing scheduled next month. Starting in June, there will be hearings in each of the nine beach areas.
The nonprofit Save the Harbor/Save the Bay will help to manage a new inquiry, and has the commission’s last report online at www.savetheharbor.org.
