Petition drive suspended after private buyer acquires YMCA land

July 19, 2012

A story in this week's Chariho Times detailed a petition drive organized by a group of Charlestown residents to encourage the town to buy a 27.7-acre piece of property on the eastern shores of Watchaug Pond formerly owned by the Ocean Community YMCA. After press time on Wednesday, the petition drive was suspended when the land was sold to a private buyer.

The petitioners aim to appropriate up to $600,000 from the town's undesignated surplus for the purchase.
