BAR HARBOR — With a little experience under their belts of holding meetings and public hearings via Zoom video conference with a call-in number for public participation, the Planning Board last week ironed out the details of another new challenge: how to hold a socially-distanced site visit for a planned development. 

The site visit and neighborhood meeting are the next steps in the board’s consideration of a planned 44-unit apartment complex on Schooner Head Road for employees of The Jackson Laboratory. The 37-acre lot is directly across from one of the parking lots, Lot G, on the laboratory’s Bar Harbor campus.
