At the first Public Hearing on the Kittridge pit expansion permit on September 27, attendees had little opportunity to voice their opinions. On November 9, Lamoine’s public will be able to tell their side. Will the new pit “preserve and enhance the landscape”? Will it “result in unsafe or unhealthful conditions”, “result in water pollution” or “adversely affect surrounding properties”? All these criteria are in our Planning Board’s checklist and Lamoine citizens will let them know how they feel at 6:30 PM on Thursday, November 9, at the Lamoine School.
One of the claims by the MacQuinn attorney at the first hearing was that no one has complained about uncovered loads of gravel coming out of the Kittridge pit. This was refuted by two audience members. One had complained to the wrong authority and another had his complaint misplaced at Town Hall. It was pointed out how difficult it is to make a special trip to Town Hall to fill out a form only to have it lost or ignored. For that reason we now have the Town of Lamoine Complaint Form in our Document Vault in the middle column.
