Wiscasset Pursues Innovative Approach to Disposing of Commercial Tax Acquired Properties.
Wiscasset is reaching out to the development community through various websites, newspaper advertisements and of course word-of-mouth in search of a creative development team interested in utilizing the site. Misty Gorski, the Town Planner explains “The property has deep water frontage (upwards of 30’), rail access, and adjacent to the electrical switchyard; it is a very unique site.” The current valuation for the parcels is approximately $6,518,100 and totals 14.32 acres. Gorski acknowledges that a variety of uses could exist within the current zoning, “Commercial and industrial uses as well as residential and maritime related uses are all allowed within current regulations and the Town is willing to work with the right developer to create a vision for the property”. “In economic times such as these, Towns cannot afford to wait for the right opportunity, Wiscasset is extending a hand and creating opportunities with the assets we have available, and with solid partners”. To view the full RFP visit www.wiscasset.org or contact Misty Gorski at email@example.com. A packet containing Town records pertaining to this property, including assessing records and the Town’s tax liens, tax lien foreclosure notices and other relevant documents, may be inspected at Wiscasset Town Office.
