WHY THE FENCE?
The installation of a wire fence surrounding the open areas of the Tradewinds park, within the town of Oak Bluffs, on the island of Marthas Vineyard has created significant pushback from the local population. On this website we intend to harness the full breadth of resources the internet has to offer, to ultimately allow full access to the open areas that are presently fenced off.
We will seek input and advise from the Legal community, the Political world, Environmental professionals and any other experts that can help explain “why the fence”. Every aspect will be studied from the laws that created the Landbank, the administration and operation of the Landbank, the environmental concerns raised in the current “Management Plan” the design, the installation and the potential unintended consequences of the fence.
