Dormant donut shop plan revived



ELLSWORTH — A plan first presented four years ago to build a Dunkin’ Donuts on Beckwith Hill will be back before the city’s planning board next month.

Bangor-area businessman Lou Lima, through his company Lima Realty Holdings, wants to build a 4,000-square-foot building on a 1.1-acre piece of land at the corner of High Street and Kingsland Crossing.

The building would be divided into two parts, with a bank occupying the slightly larger part closer to High Street and Dunkin’ Donuts in the slightly smaller part.

The Planning Board will conduct a preliminary review of the plan at its next regular monthly meeting, set for 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1, at City Hall.
