Rockland — FMC Corporation has submitted a site plan review application to construct a pad and associated equipment for off-loading compressed natural gas on Lime Street, according to city documents.

The project will go before the city planning board during a meeting Tuesday, Jan. 7, at 5:15 p.m. in the Rockland City Hall Council Chambers.

The project is planned for 19 Lime St. on the waterfront in Rockland.

The board will also have a pre-application meeting with Robert and Trudie Young, who have proposed a 15-unit cluster development subdivision of single-family detached houses at 194 Maverick St.

The Center for Maine Contemporary Art center proposed for Winter Street will come back to the planning board Jan. 21 for a continuation of its pre-application meeting.

For some it may be great,
To look at life with fear and hate.
Not for me, Mate.
I ain't gonna take the bait. ;)

Re "After all FMC has brought to our local area over the years" . .  .

Let me see . . .  Many, many years of dumping rotten stinking seaweeds at the transfer station for free. Many, many years of discharging untreatable waste water almost for free . . . Not buying a single pound of Maine seaweeds but importing cheap stuff from Indonesia etc etc etc

Sure, let the City of Rockland issue the new permit ONLY AFTER FMC cleans their act and pre-treat their waste-water before it is sent to our water treatment plant. Guess why our treatment plant has been out of compliance for quite some time . . . .
