A few years ago Nantucket’s Annual Town Meeting voted to adopt an article that bans swimming pools in the Old Historic Districts of Town and Sconset Village. The reasoning behind the article was that people are entitled to quiet enjoyment of their property without having a raucous pool party next door. This was even more evident in places with smaller lot zoning such as Town and Sconset. Private pools have been gaining in popularity for many years now and, by some estimates, there may be over 1,000 pools on the island by now. If you decide to install a pool it is important to work with professionals with local knowledge. The article below has a lot of useful information.
