Castine, Community and the Comprehensive Plan Archive

The Comprehensive Plan was passed in 2010, and since that time selectmen have appointed various committees to work towards implementing its recommendations. Some efforts, like funding economic development and steps towards more affordable housing, have been successful while others, like relaxing land use restrictions, particularly in the rural, off-neck district, have not. Is there a disconnect between the comprehensive plan and what the majority of the community will support?
