Jenness State Beach Bathhouse July Update

The Division is pleased to announce that $1,000,000 in capital budget funding for the Jenness State Beach bathhouse has been appropriated in this biennium’s budget to construct a new toilet building and upgrade the parking lot. A public information session will be held on August 9, 2017, 6:00 pm at the Rye Public Library to discuss the design.

This past winter the Division has been in discussion with the Governor’s office, the legislature and other stakeholders about the Jenness Beach redevelopment project. A new building and site design has been designed to accommodate the visitors to the beach that is also now fully compliant with current ADA standards. This design update incorporates suggestions by visitors and residents including keeping the parking lot direction the same, providing an universally accessible walkway along the seawall and limiting the length of the building along the roadway.
