Perry and Pembroke Comprehensive Plan Update
In an effort improve regional coordination and efficient delivery of local government services, the Towns of Perry and Pembroke worked together to jointly update their respective Comprehensive Plans. Although many chapters of the communities' Comprehensive Plan Update are shared, each community has its own Comprehensive Plan (posted below), each Comprehensive Plan was submitted to the State Planning Office for review under the Growth Management Act (submission and state review documents posted below).
Each community held its own public hearing. No changes were proposed in Pembroke as a result of the September 13, 2010 public hearing and it was adopted by town vote on October 6, 2010.
In Perry several changes were agreed upon as a result of the 2nd public hearing on September 21, 2010 (the first public hearing was held on August 9, 2010 and the Perry Comp Plan was rejected by voters on August 16, 2010).
The Pembroke documents below have not changed from those submitted to the state and posted for their public hearing.
The Perry documents posted below are different in the following respects:
A – Vision and Exec Summ (change to Housing summary to remove reference to “those from away”)
F – Housing (same as above in final summary)
J – Fiscal Capacity (reduction in estimated cost of commercial pier from $10,000,000 to $1,000,000)
K – Land Use (removed references to floating Commercial/Industrial districts and reduce their number from 8 to 3 in Perry; changed language so that there will be 3 C/I districts in Perry and 2 out of the 3 in Pembroke)
M – Regional Coordination (as above for Land Use)
N – Plan Implementation (as above for Land Use)
Map 11 – Proposed Land Use (removed 5 of the 8 C/I districts: modified 2 of the remaining C/I districts; added 2 CFMA shoreland zoning districts; added Pleasant Point Reservation Lands and Passamaquoddy fee-owned lands in town of Perry; removed legend reference of “Floating/Potential” from C/I description
The Perry and Pembroke Comprehensive Plan Updates were submitted to the State Planning Office for review in February of 2010 and found consistent with the Comprehensive Planning and Land Use Regulation Act (the "Growth Management Act") on May 5, 2010. The following documents were submitted and received by each town as part of that review process:
