The Rockport Planning Board will meet Wednesday, May 12 at 7 p.m. at the Rockport Opera House to discuss an agenda that includes a request for site plan review for a 900-square-foot restaurant at 3 Camden St.

Prior to the scheduled meeting, the board will conduct three site walks. The first, at 6 p.m., will take place at the corner of Routes 1 and 90 at the site where Atlantis Maritime LLC, represented by Gartley & Dorsky, plans to redesign and expand an existing boat storage and maintenance facility by enlarging an existing building and adding two new buildings on parcels identified as Map 27, Lot 179 and located at 229 Commercial St. in District 907 Modified.

After visiting the Atlantis site, the board will meet at 3 Camden St. at 6:20 p.m. At 6:40 p.m. the board will walk the site at 11 Church St. and 10 Summer St. where Southern Venture LLC, represented by Peter Gross, wants to improve parking and vehicular circulation on a parcel identified as Map 29, Lot 157.

The Atlantis Maritime project would expand the current boat storage and maintenance operation at the 5.13 acre site adjacent to the Market Basket, continuing work that was part of a plan approved on June 20, 2007.

According to the pre-application letter submitted to the town on March 31 and signed by engineer William Gartley of Gartley & Dorsky, the new design includes the expansion of one existing building, the moving of one building to a new location within the site, removal of existing storage trailers and construction of two new buildings.

The board will review those site plans listed above at the meeting as well as one from Maine Coast Heritage Trust, represented by Ron Howard, for the development of a community gardening center on a parcel identified as Map 27, Lot 193 and located on West Street in District 907.
