Ossipee Selectmen Reverse Direction On Seasonal Sites at Camp Sokokis

In a surprise announcement, Board Chair Rick Morgan said the town plans to close the campground, not just reduce the number of campsites, creating a potential conflict with a provision of the purchase and sales agreement. Responding to opponents of the purchase, board member Sandra Martin called the people behind the “Do the Math” road signs cowardly and un-American because they have chosen to be anonymous. An information session about the selectmen’s plans will be held on Monday, October 30, at 6 p.m. at Ossipee Town Hall. Voters will have the final say at a special town meeting on Tuesday, November 28.

Sokokis owner Bill Sheehan says a third party offered to buy his property and donate 90-feet of shoreline to Ossipee for a beach, but Selectman Morgan asked the campground owner to “keep his promise” to sell the entire business to the town. Meanwhile, the Select Board says ‘no’ to a request to hold weekend hearings on the purchase so that non-resident Ossipee taxpayers can attend.
