EASTHAM — Tim Klink, the founder of Coastal Land Design in Eastham and Chatham, always wanted to own his own business.

Housing plan approved in Eastham
EASTHAM — Somebody up there likes Tim Klink.
It took two appearances before the planning board, but the board agreed on Nov. 18 to allow Klink, owner of Coastal Land Design, to convert the former Church of the Visitation, at 930 Massasoit Road, into three townhouses. The vote was split, with four members in favor of the project, two opposed, including board chairman Daniel Coppelman
“It was divine intervention,” Klink said after the vote. “I was married in that church, the last wedding before it shut the doors in 2009.”
