Save our Stoney-- Cancel Plans to Sell Land Abutting Stoney Beach

    1. Petition by

      David Gellis

Generation of Woods Hole residents, students, scientists and their families have grown up on Stoney Beach. Development of the beach frontage would limit access and destroy the character of this vital Woods Hole landmark. Hundreds turned out on August 21st  to tell Dr. Borisy that MBL needs to protect Stoney.

      MBL is unque. It is not just a few buildings with Laboratories. It is a community of people and its infrastructure supports the many needs of that community. Scripps is a nice place to visit but it's not a place to stay. MBL/Woods Hole lives in our hearts and minds because of its places like Stoney Beach, Devils Lane, the MBL Club, the Library.... Please think long-term for future generations who will come and remember what we remember about Stoney Beach. The future is built on the past. We mustn't lose sight of that for a quick dollar today.

      Beautiful public area and a nice place to take a walk town while working at WHOI.

      I Spent My Summers In Woods Hole, I would go to Stoney Beach.

      The mission of an institution may change with time, and so do its needs. However, the need of the Woods Hole community for a public beach with associated parking does not. Stoney beach has been an integral part of summer life for year-round residents' and for MBL summer-visitors' families with young children -- it is the only beach in Woods Hole that doesn't require a membership or affiliation with beach-rights owners. Parking for the beach has always been limited but it is crucial that at least that much be available. Stoney Beach is 'where summer happens' in Woods Hole -- don't take the summer away from the town and the MBL community.
