ROCKLAND — The Rockland Planning Board has postponed its planned visit to the site of the planned Mid-Coast Habitat for Humanity neighborhood on Talbot Avenue.

The site visit has been re-scheduled to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 28 at 165 Talbot Ave.

Habitat plans to build 13 residences on the 10.6-acre lot.

The project is scheduled to face another review by the Planning Board on Tuesday, Jan. 18. The city is waiting for Wright-Pierce engineers to submit its review of Habitat’s stormwater management plan for the residential development. One of the stipulations in the contract zone approved by the City Council was an independent review be done of the developer’s stormwater management plan. The city selected Wright Pierce, and Habitat is paying that cost.

Mid-Coast Habitat Executive Director Tia Anderson told the Planning Board at its Dec. 7 meeting the project would be phased in over three years.

The first phase will be the six 700 square-foot homes to be managed by the Knox County Homeless Coalition.  The second phase will be two duplexes with a total footprint of 1,800 square feet, also to be managed by the Homeless Coalition. The final phase would be the three Habitat homes of 900 square feet. The Habitat homes may have second floors.

The project is scaled back from the original plan of 18 residences.
