Vassalboro Planning Board members unanimously approved all three applications on their May 7 agenda, attaching a condition to one.
Permits were approved for:
- Cornerstone Christian Fellowship on Riverside Drive to expand parking space, with work to be done in two phases.
- Thaddeus Clark to put a mobile home on an existing slab, drill a well and later build a house on a Matthews Avenue lot that is in the shoreland zone along a small stream. None of the construction will be within 100 feet of the water.
- Timothy Dowd to begin an indoor marijuana-growing facility in one of the old mill buildings in North Vassalboro, with the condition that Dowd will install an air filtration system that will prevent any odor from escaping the growing room.
Codes Enforcement Officer Richard Dolby said Dowd’s will be the fourth licensed marijuana-growing business in Vassalboro.
