Wellfleet Votes to Stop McMansions

I have often heard natives lament how much the coast, here in Wellfleet, has changed over the past decade as cottages are torn down and replaced with McMansions. Here is another photo taken from the shore at Duck Harbor yesterday. At town meeting last night, after a painfully slow start, Wellfleet voted a new by-law to limit the size of houses in the National Seashore. For details, go here. I have never seen such lines of people waiting to check in. Apparently, residents really do care about stopping the McMansionization of our town. How wonderful!
