A five-member committee was appointed by the Chilmark select board Tuesday to draft a request for proposals for the planned affordable housing project at Peaked Hill Pastures.

The decision follows resounding approval by voters at last week’s annual town meeting for the plan to develop part of the 16-acre town-owned parcel.

The committee will include two members of the planning board, one member of the housing committee and two members of the public. Select board members appointed John Keene and Valerie Sonnenthal as at-large members, with the committee representatives yet to be determined.

The committee will draft the RFP, screen the responses and make a recommendation to the select board.

“It’s my intention that this committee would be shepherding this project right through to the ribbon cutting,” select board member James Malkin said.

Also Tuesday, the board mulled how to pay for two areas of immediate concern identified by an engineering study of the Menemsha docks.

The study represented phase one of a broader plan to raise the docks to adapt to sea level rise and severe storms. Done by Bellingham-based Childs Engineering, the study found two areas in dire shape: one on the southeast corner of the commercial fishing dock and another in sink holes at the west dock parking area. Immediate repairs were recommended.

The work will cost roughly $100,000, harbor master Ryan Rossi said. The job will disrupt foot traffic for about a week but not have any impact on harbor traffic, he said.

Selectmen considered dipping into free cash or holding a special town meeting to pay for the project. A meeting was set for next week to decide.

Mr. Rossi also told the board he had applied to Seaport Development Economic Council for about $200,000 to cover a portion of the next phase of the dock project. The town would contribute $40,000.

The board delayed a request from the Martha’s Vineyard chapter of the NAACP to fly an LGBTQ+ pride flag at the town hall, fire station and police station. The board has asked town counsel Ron Rappaport for an opinion in light of a recent state Supreme Court decision over what flags can fly in front of city hall in Boston.

Chilmark fire chief Jeremy Bradshaw earned praise for completing a three-year state certification program.

“I’m very proud of him, I think the town’s very proud of him. He’s grown the fire department tremendously since he’s taken over as chief,” board member Bill Rossi said.
