Area Plan Implementation Teams
Gold Team – Land Use
Implementing the Greater Tom Nevers Area Plan to keep our land use
patterns largely unchanged and working with the Town's Roads &
Right-of-Way Committee to assure that our existing paper roads
contribute to improved beach access and neighborhood fire protection.
Land Use Conclusions & Recommendations
1. The overwhelming desire of the current residents of the Greater
Tom Nevers area is to keep the area as it is now. Therefore, no
immediate actions should be taken that would cause major changes to the
area at this time.
2. The current LUG-3 zoning should not be changed.
3. Existing paper roads should be reviewed as part of a comprehensive
planning process and those that have a clear public benefit, such as
providing access to the beaches or providing for fire protection, should
be retained. The remaining roads should be returned to the tax rolls
after appropriate action by Town Meeting.
Action Steps to be Taken
1. Right-of-Way Improvement
- Approach the Town Roads and Right-of-Way Committee [current
Chairperson is Allen Reinhard] to determine how best to include the Tom
Nevers effort in the Nantucket Town and County Right-of-Way Improvement
Plan. Volunteer the Tom Nevers Area as a testing ground for the Town and
Progress to Date
We’ve had extensive discussions with the "Roads & Right-of-Way
Committee" regarding their priorities in Tom Nevers. And currently,
they’re in negotiations with the property-owners at the end of Wanoma
Way to clarify public beach access rights.
