VISION STATEMENT, Adopted October 20, 2009

The vision of the Roads and Right of Way Committee is to preserve access to Nantucket's public and private lands, including our harbors, coastline, ponds, moors, conservation lands and historical sites. Access is one of the greatest gifts the Town of Nantucket can protect for our current and future citizens.

MISSION STATEMENT, Adopted October 20, 2009

Our mission as the Nantucket Roads and Right of Way Committee is to review any issues concerning the status of access over public and private roads, rights of way, abutters ways, proprietors roads, footpaths, and any other ways throughout Nantucket town and county and to make recommendations to the Board of Selectmen / County Commissioners to ensure and improve public access over them.
