The Lamoine Planning Board is preparing to hear arguments from gravel operators that their temporary agreements should be altered.
On Tuesday evening, September 2, 2014 at 6:30 PM at the Lamoine Town Hall, gravel companies MacQuinn and Goodwin will send their representatives to plead their case for why changes should be made to their Consent Agreements. These agreements were signed as a way to give the two gravel operators more time to comply with the 2013 Lamoine Gravel Ordinance. The main feature of these agreements concerned the drilling of wells and the collection of water samples for testing. Therefore it is likely that these will be the subjects of the proposed amendments. The relevant tax maps showing the location of pits are attached. The four maps below are taken from Lamoine tax maps 1, 3, 9 and 20 respectively. The index to these maps is here.
The agenda for Tuesday’s Planning Board meeting can be viewed here. Attending the session or watching on Cable will give us a clearer understanding of the procedures followed in Town by the gravel operators and our Planning Board.
