LINCOLNVILLE — A revision of an existing three-lot subdivision near Lincolnville Beach seeks to add three additional lots.

Adding three lots to the existing Harbor Ridge Subdivision will change the classification from a minor subdivision to a major subdivision, according to state standards.

The subdivision is located off of Route 1, north of Lincolnville Beach.

Lincolnville Code Enforcement Officer Frank Therio explained Jan. 14 that the Planning Board is in the process of reviewing the expansion of the subdivision for approval.

A pre-application discussion took place Jan. 8 with property owner Steve Case. The next step is a public hearing for preliminary approval. If all materials are submitted by Jan. 21, that hearing could take place Feb. 12, according to Therio. At this hearing, the public can learn about what is being proposed. The Planning Board reviews and votes on whether the required materials that have been submitted are complete. The last step is final approval, which requires the Planning Board to review whether the subdivision expansion meets over 20 standards.

Lincolnville's Subdivision Ordinance outlines the many standards that must be reviewed when a minor subdivision, defined as three or fewer lots, is expanded to four or more lots. These standards include water supply, sewage disposal, erosion and stormwater management.
