Protecting Working Waterfront and Public Access

Published by Jane Disney on

The Hancock County Planning Commission invites you to join them for the Protecting Working Waterfronts and Public Access workshop, which is addressing  growth and development issues facing Hancock County. The June 27, 2013 workshop will focus on public access to the shore and the working waterfront.

  VFW Hall, 419 Main Street, Ellsworth (locally known as Washington Junction Road) June 27, 2013 (6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.)

 Dinner begins at 5:00 PM, workshop begins at 6:00 PM,  registration $18.00. 

An outgrowth of the HCPC’s Planning For Prosperity initiative, the on-going forum series started in 2004.  The many development challenges and opportunities facing Hancock County spurred  creation of this series.  Organizers hope that the series will lead to:

  • Increased awareness of state laws that affect municipal development decisions.
  • Identification of key development issues facing Hancock County.
  • Implementation of planning & development practices that promote sustainable economic development while protecting our quality of life.
  • Constructive dialogue among municipal officials, conservation groups and the development & construction sector.
