The first of two public information meetings for the accepted land purchase of the Holiday Harbor Waterfront Cottages by the Town of Gibraltar will be held Tuesday. Town Administrator Travis Thyssen says the owner of the property, Barb McKesson, accepted the $3.5 million offer for the nearly five-acre parcel that could greatly impact the dock services the town currently provides. He says the property fits into the waterfront master plan that the Town of Gibraltar conducted in 2016.
Thyssen says members of the Harbor Commission informed him to look for opportunities to expand the town’s waterfront when attractive properties became available. The area has five docks and can accommodate 28 boat slips. The first public information meeting will begin at 5 pm Tuesday, with a second one held at 10 am on November 6. On November 15, the special electors of the Town of Gibraltar will vote on the land purchase at 6 pm.
