Growing dissent to private marina project is deja vu for Rockland

There is growing opposition to a long-term plan by Yachting Solutions to extending its private pier which would bisect a heavily-used channel and force the relocation of 54 moorings The opposition to the plan is reminiscent to a grass-roots movement that twice blossomed to stop a proposal by the Samoset Resort for construction of a lengthy private pier that would have run parallel to the Rockland Breakwater.,, The first effort came in 2000 when the resort proposed an 850-foot long pier about 200 feet inside the Breakwater to serve up to 40 boats. The project immediately faced opposition from lobstermen, schooner captains, and citizens. A group named “Save the Breakwater” formed to oppose the project. >click to read<10:41
