Chilmark residents and town officials convened this week to discuss how best to manage Menemsha’s growing summer tourism. 

Seven diagonal spaces on North Road between the Galley and Menemsha Market are changing to three parallel spaces.

Construction to modify a deck at the Homeport restaurant in Menemsha was halted last week after the Chilmark building department found the new owners hadn’t secured a building permit.


The town of Chilmark was awarded a $205,937 grant on Monday from the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management’s Coastal Resilience Grant Program.

The Chilmark select board is mulling how to put up its portion of the funds for Menemsha commercial dock improvements, has questions on an affordable housing project, and approved a three-year contract for the fire chief.

Chilmark voted to install security cameras on the harbor master shack in Menemsha while it forms a committee to figure out the best way to install cameras on the west dock.
