Rockport hotel project moving forward despite citizen’s group opposition

Work on a boutique hotel in Rockport is moving forward despite a looming appeal from a citizen’s group that is seeking to limit the number of rooms in the establishment.

The group, Friends of Rockport, is seeking to overturn the Rockport Planning Board’s approval of the project, or at least force the developers to reduce the number of guest rooms in the proposed Rockport Harbor Hotel from 26 to 20, in keeping with a referendum that was approved by voters in August. The project was approved on Feb. 27.

The Rockport Zoning Board of Appeals will be reviewing the group’s appeal at its Nov. 17 meeting.
