M. Garrett reported the Conservation Commission is developing Aquifer Protection Overlay Zone Ordinance amendments for future consideration by the Planning Board.


  1. Sno-Drum LLC. Planning Board “Findings” for the rejection of Sno-Drum permits have been sent to Sno Drum.
  2. Lamoine State Parks Project: The Board awaits a formal application from the Department of Environmental Protection.


1. Subdivision Pre-application. S. & R. Joy. Map 4, Lot 55. S. & R. Joy propose an eleven lot subdivision off Needle's Eye Road , adjacent to one developed over five years ago. After some discussion, M. Garrett moved to accept the pre-application as complete. The motion was seconded by C. Ohmart and passed unanimously.

The Board then listed these several matters for discussion and decision as the application process proceeds:

An on-site visit is scheduled for 8:30 am on Saturday, February 23, 2008. Meet at the site.

2. Building/Commercial Permit Pre-Application. J & L Karst, Map 4, Lot 7. J & L Karst propose to build an 8' x 10' structure for the purpose of selling fresh produce and a variety of seafood items. Because the sea food is to be bought from one source and sold to another, the Board holds this operation to necessitate a Commercial permit. (See #6 – Table of Land Use.) M. Garrett moved and C. Ohmart seconded a motion to find the pre-application complete with listed conditions. The motion was passed 5 – 0.

The conditions are:

A Site visit is scheduled for 8:00 am on Saturday, February 23, 2008. Meet on the site ( 239 Walker Road )


With unanimity, the Planning Board favorably commented on its segment in the Town Report. Although the Board would prefer a photo of some activity other than the “alteration” of natural landscape and habitat invasion of subdivision activity.

The Board adjourned at 7:58 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Michael F. Garrett, Secretary
