Chilmark voters Monday breezed through a special town meeting warrant, approving funding for projects in and around Menemsha and enhanced radio transmission for public safety officers.

Fifty-five voters turned out on a chilly evening for the meeting at the Chilmark Community Center, approving a total of $150,622 in spending requests, all covered by the town’s free-cash account. All eight articles were approved unanimously.

A total of $18,000 will pay for improvements at a parking lot on Tabor House Road, where visitors can catch a free shuttle into Menemsha in the summer, and new signs and other improvements in the village itself. Both projects were recommended by a subcommittee of the town planning board, which is working to update the town’s 2003 master plan.

“We realized there was some low-hanging fruit, things that we could address that are not going to box us in,” committee member Janet Widener said of the process so far.

Recommendations for the parking lot include cement bumpers or other methods to mark parking spots, a bus stop and shelter, screening to block the view of the former landfill, new lighting, and portable or composting toilet. Signs directing people to the parking lot are recommended for various intersections around town and at the entrance to the lot itself, with additional signs planned for both the new bus stop and the one in Menemsha.

Resident Rick Shweder worried about the effect of so many new signs in town.

“I can easily imagine a process by which the suburbanization of the community is tied to more and more signs,” he said.

But subcommittee member Joan Malkin assured him that the issue was already on the radar. “We agree with you that we don’t want to be lost in a forest of signs, but we do want some clarity,” she said.

Chilmark executive secretary Tim Carroll said the new signs in Menemsha would replace existing signs that are out of compliance. He added that improvements in Menemsha would include brush cutting along the road and hiring a street sweeper to keep the parking lines clear of sand in the summer.

“We are trying to fix what we have,” he said of the area. “We are not really planning to add much to it.”

In another effort to alleviate summer traffic in Menemsha, the town police department plans to buy a small vehicle to use there instead of a cruiser. Police chief Brian Cioffi said the goal is to allow for beach rescues as well as regular patrol, but the department hasn’t decided whether to go with an electric or gas-powered vehicle. “We are having a hard time narrowing down which one is going to be better,” he said. Voters approved the $9,600 request with little discussion.

An appropriation of $50,000 will pay for the removal of revetment stones near the Coast Guard boathouse, to make way for a new transient dock funded mostly by a $100,000 grant from the state Seaport Advisory Council.

And a new radio repeater on Peaked Hill will help improve communication among fire, police and EMS services on the Island by amplifying the signal. Mr. Cioffi said earlier that the device would eliminate dead spots and allow public safety workers to communicate on a single channel. The $7,600 request was approved with no discussion.

Voters also appropriated $50,000 for a townwide property revaluation for fiscal year 2017, as required by the state; $8,000 for a new chimney in town hall; and $7,372 in payments for a temporary youth services librarian last summer.

At the start of the meeting, moderator Everett Poole held a moment of silence for former children’s librarian Kristin Maloney, who died this fall after a battle with cancer.

“The town lost a very good citizen this year,” Mr. Poole said. “A friend to all of us, a very good librarian, a friend to every child in town, and most children on the Island.”

The meeting adjourned after about 20 minutes.
