Pointy Head campground plans advance to public hearing phase 

TREMONT — Plans for a 15-site campground in Bass Harbor have been advanced by the Tremont Planning Board. 

The project, known as Pointy Head, has come before the board multiple times over the last two years but its layout and concept have continued to change. As currently presented, the campground will consist of 11 cabins and four tent sites on raised platforms. 

Last month, the board once again deemed the site plan application incomplete for failing to include some needed information such as setback requirements, septic system sizes, building elevation dimensions and existing areas with right of way. 

All of those missing pieces have now been presented to the board and board members found the applicant’s application complete at its meeting earlier this month to move to the public hearing phase. 

After a review of other revisions involving driveway dimensions, intersecting roads, water drainage information, intercepting driveways, indication of water supply and location dimensions for ground floor, the board voted 5-0 to find the revised submission for Pointy Head to be complete. 

A site visit was scheduled for March 22 and a public hearing will be held at 6 p.m. on April 12 in the Harvey Kelley Meeting Room at the Tremont Town Office.

**This story has been updated to correct the development’s application process.
