Reinforcing Nantucket Customs Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Nantucket has evolved a set of customs and bylaws to protect the island’s beaches, open spaces, sense of community, and historic character. During COVID, enforcement of some bylaws was relaxed to allow dining, art, advertising, and vending on the streets and sidewalks. Town officials worry that reestablishing the Nantucket norms after the pandemic may be difficult. The goals of this study were to define what makes Nantucket culture special, evaluate stakeholder concerns, and develop educational materials. We found that islanders want to preserve most customs but are also in favor of expanding outdoor dining options. We created radio PSAs, posters, and a list of recommendations to reinforce adherence to island bylaws, customs, and conventions.
