Board To Review Subdivision Pier



SOUTHWEST HARBOR — One week after reviewing a sketch plan for The Village at Ocean’s End, the planning board is scheduled to consider a dock to serve the 40-unit subdivision.

The planning board is scheduled to meet Thursday, April 2, to consider an application from Crafts Family Reserve LLC for construction of a 136-foot fixed pier that would connect with five seasonal floats arranged in a T-shaped pattern. According to the application, the pier would be used by a maximum of six boats that are to be shared in common by homeowners.

Jeff Crafts, developer of The Village at Ocean’s End, has already received permitting for the pier from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and the Maine Historic Preservation Commission. A submerged lands lease from the Maine Department of Conservation is pending, said Don Lagrange, the town’s code enforcement officer. The public comment period for the lease ends April 4.

The town’s harbor committee has reviewed the project and has no objections.
