The Winterport Planning Board meets at the Town Office on the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 p. m. Please use the following information to guide you in submittal of materials for Planning Board review.

Notice to Prospective Applicants

The materials in the information package you've received should include the following:

  1. Winterport Land Use Ordinance
  2. Application Form
To assist you in interpretation of the ordinance requirements and to answer questions regarding the application process, inquire at the Town Office to schedule an appointment with the Code Enforcement Officer. It is strongly recommended that all applicants meet with the CEO to facilitate efficient processing of your application.

Requests to be placed on the Planning Board Agenda should be directed to the Clerk's Office at the Winterport Town Office during regular business hours. Although by ordinance it is permissible for applicants to submit preapplication sketch plan applications directly to the Planning Board at regular meetings, it is strongly recommended that all materials be submitted at least 15 days in advance of meetings.
For site plan and subdivision applications, 10 copies of all materials must be submitted to the Clerk at least 15 days prior to the regular meetings to qualify for acceptance as an agenda item.

Providing these materials in advance will allow the Planning Board members to become more familiar with your project which provides an opportunity for expedited review. Providing all required application materials and the correct number of copies will help avoid delays in review of your application.
