Town of Westport Compo Beach

Master Plan

Compo Beach is located in the historic Compo/Owenoke District and is on the National registry of Historic Places. The Town of Westport retained Lothrop Associates and our planning consultant AKRF to develop a Master Plan for the site and buildings that had been badly damaged by both Hurricane Irene and Super-Storm Sandy. The 18-month collaborative process included a public charrette kickoff event and monthly public meetings, all documented on a dedicated public access website established specifically for this project. New construction and renovation options were all considered, balancing functionality and cost under FEMA regulations, for the bath house, restaurant, life guard facilities, marina clubhouse, harbor master police, camp buildings and remote restrooms.
