Planning & Development
As your Town Planner, my primary responsibility is to coordinate growth and development in Wiscasset through the enforcement of local, state, and federal laws, regulations, and ordinances. Some of my duties include responding to requests for assistance on all land use development questions, reviewing development proposals and plans, production and implementation of the comprehensive plan, development and amendment of all local ordinances, land use violation enforcement, oversight of code enforcement office activity, shared responsibility of economic development duties, processing liquor licenses and other non-traditional licenses and permits, staff advisor for the Planning Board, Ordinance Review Committee, Conservation Commission, and Comprehensive Plan Committee. One particular challenge will be the implementation of the comprehensive plan including the complete ordinance revision. Some highlights from July 2007 – July 2008 are below.
- Assisted the Planning Board with 5 subdivision applications, 11 site plan review applications and 3 ordinance reviews.
- Assisted the Ordinance Review Committee with the creation of 13 ordinances.
- Assisted the Comprehensive Plan Committee with the completion and adoption of the comprehensive plan.
- Creation of a Conservation Commission.
The Planning Department is the key contact point for all development inquiries. The Department routinely answers citizen questions and complaints whether planning related or not. The Department is involved with zoning enforcement issues.
