10 years later, a decision arrives

Planning Board signs off on Bailey's Pond project


Solstad said that with the issuance of their approval, the project is now out of their hands. She added that if the developer doesn’t want to work with the conditions imposed as part of the approval, they could appeal, but for their part, the Planning Board is satisfied with the resolution they were able to reach.

“It’s the biggest project in many years,” Solstad said. “So with the constraints we had under zoning, we wanted to try to get the best project we could for the town, and I think we’ve managed to do that.”
