On Wednesday, April 8, 2020, the Kennebunk Select Board held a Special Meeting via Zoom to discuss access to the beaches. After much discussion, including public input and comment, the Select Board voted the following:
- To keep Gooch's, Middle and Mother's beaches CLOSED.
- To close the sidewalks and prohibit pedestrians from using the sidewalks located in front of or adjacent to Gooch's, Middle and Mother's beaches from Great Hill Road to Bayberry Avenue.
- To prohibit parking adjacent to Gooch's, Middle and Mother's beaches.
- To limit Beach Avenue to LOCAL TRAFFIC ONLY. Only those who need to access their residence are allowed to travel on Beach Avenue.
PAYT Trash Bags
Currently the Town has amended the rules for use of the Town's Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) trash bags to aid those in need. Our hope is that residents who are able to use the Town's trash bags will continue to do so, as the cost of the curbside collection service is paid through the purchase of these bags.
Residents that have concerns about entering stores for this purchase or are experiencing an economic setback, may use any bag they have available.This is in effect through April 30. The Select Board will continue to discuss the use of PAYT trash bags at their next regular meeting on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.
