COVID-19 testing site, McDonald’s renovations issued city permits

ELLSWORTH — Maine Coast Regional Health Facility will erect a temporary building to conduct COVID-19 testing, according to a permit issued in September by the city of Ellsworth. The building cost is estimated at just over $60,000.

Three additional commercial building permits were issued that month, including one for a $245,000 interior renovation of McDonald’s on High Street, a new roof and insulation for St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, estimated at $198,200, and tower upgrades on Buttermilk Road by Beechland Corp. for an estimated $25,000.

Of the 20 building permits issued, four were for new, single-family dwellings and four were for additions to existing homes.
