Response to Judgment from Blasch Case
Contact: George Price, Superintendent, 508-771-2144
Superintendent George Price stated today, “I am deeply disappointed that Cape Cod National Seashore received notice that the Massachusetts Land Court justice dismissed the Complaint of the USA v. Wellfleet Zoning Board of Appeals and Blasch Del Mar, LLC on December 28, 2009.” The complex zoning case commenced on July 23, 2008. The case concerned the upholding of a building permit for demolition and construction of a new, replacement dwelling triple the size of the previous dwelling at 1440 Chequessett Neck Road in Wellfleet. The Judge found that there was not a “particularized injury” and, accordingly, the USA lacked standing to appeal.
Price said National Park Service staff will review the particulars of Judge Trombly’s decision and consider next steps.
Did You Know?
The area at the northernmost tip of Cape Cod National Seashore in Provincetown is known as “Race Point”. It gets its name from the swift tidal “race” that swirls from ocean to bay around the point. The swimming beach is located a safe distance away in calmer waters.
