The Lincolnville Planning Board approved a change to a commercial site plan March 31 that will allow construction of an outdoor pavilion at Cellardoor Winery.

The pavilion is about 8,500 square feet in size, and open on all sides, according to Charlie Frattini of Phi Builders + Architects.

The hospitality industry is looking for outside facilities in the time of COVID, he explained. The pavilion is on the property near the vineyards and accessible to pedestrian foot traffic. It will be a place to get out of the sun or rain and enjoy the winery at socially-distanced tables.

The structure is 26 feet tall, and will be shingled. The flooring is a rubber mat material.

The pavilion is surrounded by permeable surface on all sides, and will have a drip edge around the roof. The plan for foundational supports and system attaching the pavilion to those supports to prevent uplift has been updated by Casco Engineering.

Planning Board Chairwoman Elizabeth Eudy asked Frattini to mention where the pavilion came from.

The structure was formerly located at a former MBNA property known as Hedges Hall, he said. It was dismantled and is now stored on the Cellardoor property at 367 Youngstown Road. The pavilion will not be set up with a breezeway as it was at Hedges Hall.

Planning Board members unanimously approved the amendment to allow the pavilion, to Cellardoor's existing commercial site plan.

Also approved was construction of a two-story, two-bay garage at 175 Main St. The dimension of the building are 32 by 32 feet with an 8 by 12-foot breezeway. The garage will contain a bathroom. The building elevation will not exceed the current building onsite, Jesse Richards said.

Bruce and Jesse Richards, owners of Central Exterminating Services, plan to use the building for storage of chemicals and their trucks. The products are already stored onsite in the basement of a residence on the property, and will be moved to the new building.

Planning Board members Jay Foster and Sandy Delano asked some questions about the chemicals. The main chemicals being stored have not changed significantly since a list was provided when the commercial site plan for the business was approved in 2013. They are stored in cabinets made for spill protection, and are packaged in containers with the largest size being one gallon, according to Bruce Richards.

Board members unanimously approved the amendment to the original site plan, for the building of the garage and breezeway.
