Historic properties list revised



BAR HARBOR — An update to the town’s official list of historic buildings will come to voters on the June 13 town meeting ballot, following a vote by the Town Council last week.

Inclusion on the list imposes some additional requirements for property owners who may wish to demolish or renovate those buildings. The buildings are all in the Design Review Overlay District, which includes downtown districts and the Town Hill Business district.

The list appears as Appendix A in the town’s land use ordinance (LUO) and is supposed to be updated annually by the Design Review Board, Planning Director Bob Osborne said. The process for approval of updates is different than other LUO amendments; for example, no public hearing before the Town Council is required.

The DRB held a public hearing on Feb. 23 on their updated list. Property owners who indicated that they did not want their building to be included were removed from the proposed list, Osborne said. In updating the list, the board removed buildings that already had been demolished, updated business names and removed buildings no longer situated in the Overlay District.

The proposal also includes reordering the list to be published by tax map and lot numbers for easier reference, Osborne said.
