Supervisor hopes Crown Point beach not lost to sands of time

â Says place to swim at Historic Site would be positive for community


CROWN POINT — The Champlain Bridge connects Crown Point with Addison, Vt.

Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava (R-Moriah) said he didn't want to discourage Harrington, but getting the beach back could be a battle.

"Coming from a community with two public beaches, a town beach and a village beach, I can tell you that regulations for beaches today, public beaches, are pretty stringent and can get expensive because of manning it with the lifeguards you have to have and so on.

"I would say you have a long shot."

Harrington said he knows that but will continue working on the issue.

"I can deal with that as long as I have the support of the supervisors, and pressure can be put on the state to have them investigate this."

A representative for the Public Affairs Bureau of the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, which operates the Historic Site, said her agency would have no comment on Harrington's proposal.
