Long Sands Beach Master Plan

The public facilities (Bathhouse, Roadway, Sidewalks and Drainage) in the Long Sands Beach area of York Beach were constructed in the 40’s & 50’s. These much used facilities are functionally deficient and have out lived their useful life. The voters of the Town of York have approved three separate capital improvement projects: A drainage project just north of the Anchorage Inn was approved in May of 2012; A second drainage project just north of the Long Sands Bathhouse and the replacement and expansion of the Long Sands Bathhouse was approved in May of 2013.

In an effort to take advantage of economies of scale, close proximity and improve coordination between the above mentioned capital improvement projects the Board of Selectmen authorized combining the survey work for all four capital projects.

Follow the entire process of the proposed Long Sands Beach Master Plan:
