Victory | January 14 2019
The Surfrider Foundation New Hampshire Chapter opposed a proposal that would have placed a porta-potty at Sawyer's Beach.
Grounds for opposition icluded:
Due these factors, the Surfrider Foundation New Hampshire Chapter urged the Rye Board of Selectmen to oppose this request.
The Chapter was victorious when the Board of Selectmen voted on 1/14/19 to take the money that was budgeted for the porta-potty out of the budget!
BUT THERE IS STILL ROOM FOR MORE ACTION TO PROTECT THE COAST FROM THIS MESS!
The Beach Committee submitted article 35 that will be voted on at the March Town Election. If the article passes, then no porta-potties will ever be able to be put at Sawyers Beach!!
RYE RESIDENTS CAN HELP by turning out to the March Town Election and voting YES to pass Article 35.
