China planners to consider three commercial projects

by Mary Grow

China Planning Board members have three commercial projects near South China Village and Route 3 to consider at their Tuesday, Dec. 10 meeting, which starts at 6:30 p.m. in the town office meeting room and is open to the public.

Codes Officer Bill Butler expects a preliminary presentation by Sunrise Investments LLC on plans for two solar arrays, one on Route 3 adjacent to Dan Ouellette’s loam mining operation and the other in Mike Willette’s pit off Arnold Road.

Also, Jamie Nichols is scheduled to present plans for a self-storage facility on Vassalboro Road, on vacant land just north of the existing car wash.

If time permits, board members will begin consideration of a local marijuana ordinance and application form.

Since the Nov. 5 local elections, the Planning Board members are Randall Downer, Tom Miragliuolo, Natale Tripodi,Toni Wall and James Wilkens. The District 3 seat (southeastern China) is vacant.

    The third item on the agenda (marijuana ordinance consideration) is intended to be an introduction to the planning board on what another town is doing. Decisions on whether to proceed beyond the informal discussion stage has not been made yet.
