COMPO BEACH 2.0

WELCOME TO THE COMPO BEACH MASTER PLAN WEBSITE!

This website is a portal for obtaining and sharing public information regarding the development of a Master Plan for Compo Beach, an incredibly valuable town asset. It has been many years since the town has conducted a comprehensive review of how Westport Residents use the Compo Beach area and solicited feedback on ways to make the experience there even more enjoyable. We are very excited about this important town-wide project.

This website is a place for members of our community to submit their thoughts and recommendations and see what others have in mind as well. It will be updated on a continual basis throughout the project, so we encourage you to check back frequently.
