LUO hearings

BAR HARBOR — The Bar Harbor Town Council will hold public comment sessions on three proposed amendments to the land use ordinance on March 20.

The biggest change integrates appendix C into article III of chapter 125 of the town code. Appendix C is a chart that shows the permitted uses of 30 of the town’s 40 districts, the rest are in text in article III. This amendment moves all land use and dimension specifications into a text format and adds a map of each district.

The other two changes to the ordinance include removing timber harvesting rules specific to Bar Harbor and correcting shoreland zoning specifications, both to remain consistent with state regulations.
