Waldoboro selectmen voted June 14 to extend the moratorium on methadone clinics and marijuana dispensaries for another 180 days.

No one spoke at a public hearing on the issue at the Board of Selectmen meeting. Selectmen in attendance were Ted Wooster, Craig Cooley and Steve Cartwright.

“The planning board is just about finished with the ordinance and that way we can vote on it in November,” said Eileen Dondlinger, interim town manager.

Townspeople voted Jan. 11 at a special town meeting to impose a moratorium to give the planning board time to develop regulations for methadone clinics and marijuana dispensaries.

The planning board has created draft ordinances for methadone clinics and marijuana dispensaries and cultivation facilities. A public hearing on the draft ordinances was held May 11.

To go into effect, townspeople would have to vote to approve the new ordinances.

The Board of Selectmen also voted June 14 to “swap” some land used for recreation. The town owns the tennis courts behind the A.D. Gray building. The National Park Service, which originally provided a grant for the courts, recently said they were in need of repair. Town officials have said a potential buyer for the former school may want the tennis court area, and access to the courts could become difficult.

Selectmen voted unanimously to “swap” the tennis court area for the picnic area along the Medomak River near Hannaford with the National Park Service. The tennis courts would no longer be encumbered by National Park Service regulations, and the land along the river would be set aside for recreation.
