A planning board hearing on the proposed construction of a three story, three-unit condominium at 29 Waterville Street on the Hill has been rescheduled for Tuesday, July 14th – the time is uncertain.

The hearing had been scheduled for June 9th, but was tabled at the request of the deverlopers Waterville Triad LLC.  The extra time will give the developers time to resubmit plans regarding the construction of the proposed condominium.  According to Jean Fraser of the planning division, the city should receive  this  additional material within the next several weeks.

Many neighbors in the area are opposed to the construction of the condominium because of its size, “industrial” look and its obstruction of the Portland Harbor view.   The proposed plans call for it to be well within the city’s height ordinance.
