Nantucket’s Director of Planning Andrew Vorce discussed the Town’s Master Plan, now in its eleventh year. Some area associations have developed their own specific plans, which the NTA is undertaking.
Julia Lindner, Executive Director of ACK-NOW, gave an overview of the organization and its mission, which is to define problems of substance for Nantucket and find solutions to them. Currently, these include growth, the housing crisis, support for the year-round community, and understanding the impact of short-term rentals.
