Sign this petition if you live in Weston and bought a Compo pass last year, but WILL NOT buy one this year.

Prices went from $250 to $375 for Weston residents, and from $40 to $50 for Westport residents. Westport expects Weston to cover ~40% of the upgrade costs to the beach, when we represent LESS than 7% of the people who pay to use the beach.

From Charlie Haberstroh, the head of Westport Parks and Rec:

"This is addressed to Westonites:
Your emblems still cost a lot less than emblems at Compo for other out of Towners. The number of emblems available to Westonites were not limited as were the dailies or out of town emblems. Westporters are covering roughly 1/2 the additional costs and out of towners 1/2.

We understand that the increases are high in percentage terms. We hope you continue to use our fine facilities in Parks and rec, but it’s a free world. This overcrowding issue is one that affected all shoreline communities in SW Connecticut, not just Westport. I would be surprised if other affected communities take similar actions."
