The popular Pie Chicks bakery will open a retail shop in Vineyard Haven later this summer. At the town select board meeting Tuesday, owner Chrissy Kinsman was approved for a common victualer’s license at the former location of Shepherd’s Provisions on State Road.

“We’re excited to get resettled and get in a new space with the new energy, and make some pie for y’all,” Ms. Kinsman told selectmen during their regular public meeting online.

Since starting the business in 2013, Ms. Kinsman has been baking her pies and pastries in a commercially-certified kitchen located in a home on Norton street, she said. Once the operation has moved to the State Road location, she plans to continue with wholesale only while determining how and when the retail shop will begin serving customers.

“I’m still a little concerned about having an open front door,” she said. “I’m willing to open a window.” The property also has stone tables outside where people can sit at a safe distance from one another, Ms. Kinsman said.

In other business Tuesday, the board voted to authorize town administrator John (Jay) Grande to review and approve restaurant applications for outdoor dining, with alcohol service for liquor-licensed eateries.

Police chief Mark Saloio said Mataya Trusty, who was hired in May as a summer traffic officer, has had her off-Island National Guard training extended through July. The board authorized him to hire Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School student Alex Washington to plug the gap in traffic enforcement.

“When Ms. Trusty returns at the end of July, we will reevaluate,” the chief said.

Board chairman Melinda Loberg said she is pleased to see the police department recruiting from the Island community.

“This is the way we will begin to address the future needs of our police department and other departments around town,” Mrs. Loberg said.

The board moved to allow yard sales to resume in Tisbury under new safety guidelines from health agent Maura Valley, which will be provided in advance to yard sale permit applicants. Town staff will also notify the police department of the times and locations of permitted yard sales, so that officers can make sure that mask and social distancing rules will be observed.

Tuesday’s meeting included two public presentations, both of which board members received with enthusiasm.

Renee Lohman, chief executive officer of Navigator Elder Homes, showed renderings of the planned Green House Community nursing home in Edgartown, which has embarked on a $12 million building campaign with the goal of breaking ground in 2021.

“I love it,” said selectman Jeff Kristal. “You’re hitting a home run with this. I think it’s beautiful.”

The Green House Community aims to replace the Windemere Nursing and Rehabilitation Facility.

The project is in the early stages and still has a gauntlet of regulatory approvals to clear, as well as funds to raise.

And Bert Jackson of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce invited Tisbury to join a $1 million, grant-funded network of public installations promoting the region’s maritime and water-related economy.

Expedition Blue pairs physical viewing stations on public property with a responsive website providing a guide to waterfront history and industries.

Ten Cape towns and Nantucket have already signed on for the program, which requires only that towns site the installations on public land and maintain them for 15 years. All of the materials used are guaranteed for at least 20 years, Mr. Jackson said.

Board members agreed to authorize Mr. Grande to sign a letter of interest in joining the Expedition Blue network.

Town finances are sound, Mr. Grande and finance director Jon Snyder told the board, but recommended as a precaution that Tisbury adopt a state provision, section 31 of Chapter 44 in the Massachusetts statutes, allowing emergency deficit spending.

“There’s no harm in it, and it would be good to have the ability, just in case,” Mr. Snyder said. The board approved.

An anonymous donation to the town’s shellfish program in memory of Clinton Griesser, an Islander who died in 2016 while swimming at Edgartown Great Pond, was accepted gratefully by shellfish warden Danielle Ewart.

“It will be put to good use, to purchase steamer seeds,” Ms. Ewart said.

“Clinton was actually a couple of years behind me [at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School] and we shared a German class together, and so it’s very special,” she added.

A public hearing on Vineyard Grocer’s application for a common victualler’s license was continued to 4:30 p.m. June 30 and a hearing on fees and hours of operation for the local refuse drop-off was scheduled for July 7.
