Convenient MD, Community Foundation projects permitted

ELLSWORTH — The weather may be turning, but that hasn’t slowed building in the city.

Code Enforcement staff issued 23 building permits in October, up slightly compared to the same month last year, when 21 permits were issued.

Several large projects are in the works for business and homeowners.

Urgent care clinic Convenient MD broke ground on its $1.2-million, 5,350-square-foot facility on High Street, across from Walgreens.

The CEO of Convenient MD, Max Puyanic, previously told The American he expects the clinic, which offers a “a hybrid between a traditional urgent care clinic and an emergency department,” to open next summer.

On the nonprofit side, the Maine Community Foundation is planning a 4,000-square-foot addition to its Main Street headquarters at an estimated cost of $713,531.

Residential building also continues apace, with permits issued for six homes valued at more than $200,000.

The company Bridgetwin LLC received a permit to build a $500,000 single-family home with a garage and covered porch on Harmony Way, according to city records.

James McCown is planning a $430,000, 3,184-square-foot home on Patten Way, while Russell Sprague plans a $400,000, single-family home with a garage and deck on Sugar Way.

Beena Kadakkuzha also plans to build a 2,414-square-foot home with a bonus room, garage and deck for an estimated $395,000 on Tinker Farm Way and Louise Shindler was issued permits for a $300,000 single-family home on Nicolin Road.

Mudrooms, garages, decks and sheds were also in the works for a number of residents.
