Sal’s Beach Seats Get Reprieve
Sal’s Place at 99 Commercial St. can keep its full beach seating for now. But that won’t hold unless a Land Court judge changes his position by the June 28 select board meeting.
At least 14 people asked the select board on June 14 to continue to allow the restaurant owners to seat people on the bayside beach, which was allowed last year during the pandemic.
Greg Connors of 101 Commercial St. is suing Sal’s for stretching that seating into the intertidal zone in front of his property. A Land Court judge issued an injunction barring Sal’s owner Siobhan Carew and daughter Michela Carew-Murphy from putting seats there.
Town Manager Alex Morse advised the select board to revoke the permit and comply with the injunction. But on June 14, the select board voted to delay deciding until Carew’s attorney can seek a clarification from the judge.
Plan for East End Park
Over the next three months, Provincetown and consultants Weston & Sampson will hold a series of events and an ongoing survey about the park at 387-395A Commercial Street, also known as the East End Waterfront Park.
The land was purchased in 2018 from the late Elena Hall with $1.4 million in Land Bank funds. The town is planning to turn the former parking lot into a park that provides “safe, welcoming and environmentally friendly access for both passive and active recreational activities,” according to a statement from the Provincetown Recreation Dept.
The first community meeting will be at the park on June 24 from 3 to 5 p.m., followed by a discussion from 6 to 8. Participants can tour the site and provide input in person or virtually.
