The Board of Selectmen voted unanimously at its meeting on August 17th to set a Special Town Meeting for Tuesday, September 29th for the residents to consider the adoption of the Core Zoning Code.
The Code and all associated information to be considered at the Special Town Meeting can be found on the Town’s website under the banner link at the top of the page or you can click here.
The warrant to be voted upon at the Special Town Meeting can be reviewed here.
The Special Town Meeting will be unique as it will occur under a tent outdoors at Fosters Auction Company at 822 US-1. Due to Maine CDC guidelines, we will require physical distancing and the wearing of masks for attendees. The Town is investigating the possibility for residents who are uncomfortable to sit under the tent to participate from the safety of their own vehicles in the parking lot, but those are still details to be worked out.
Many residents may recall in March the Town had scheduled a public hearing the week of public events being cancelled across the country. That meeting never occurred but the Town recognizes there are many questions regarding this code and how it impacts residents. As a result, members of the Board of Selectmen and Zoning Committee are teaming up to set up pop up meetings with residents. This Saturday (8/22) from 10am – 12pm Rob Nelson and Rem Briggs will be set up outside the Town Office to meet with any residents who have questions. Joel Lind will be offering the same 10am-12pm window on the following Saturday (8/29).
For residents who have more specific needs, Tor Glendinning and Brian Foote will be available outdoors at the Town Office on Tuesday and Thursday from 12pm – 1pm over the next couple of weeks. Please call the office to schedule an appointment.
