Lamoine Board of Appeals

The Lamoine Board of Appeals meets on an as-needed basis to consider decisions of the Code Enforcement Officer and the Planning Board. In general, the appeal must be filed within 30-days of the decision. Consult the town's various ordinances for the rules on filing appeals.

Appeals cost $50 for Building and Land Use decisions. Upon application to the Chairman of the Board of Appeals, made through the town office, a meeting will be scheduled and all parties notified by mail. A public meeting will be held so all sides in the appeal can present their evidence, and the board will deliberate and render a decision.

Next Meeting - September 10, 2020 - 6:30 PM
