Castine Zoning Archive

Since the 2010 passage by Castine voters of a Comprehensive Plan that recommended reviewing zoning ordinances with an eye to increasing economic development and affordable housing, the board of selectmen and citizen committees have tackled a task that touches the core of why Castiners choose to live in Castine.
