Westbrook will begin to review its land use ordinances related to large-scale subdivisions, less than three weeks after the City Council killed a proposed moratorium on residential construction.

A public meeting to begin that process will take place Wednesday at Westbrook Middle School.

“This won’t be the only opportunity for people to have public comment, but it will be the first,” said Council President Brendan Rielly, who represents Ward 1.

Westbrook residents have raised concerns in recent months about the pace of home building in their city. In particular, neighbors pushed back against Blue Spruce Farm on Spring Street, where developer Risbara Bros. is awaiting city approval for more than 100 rental units right next to where it is already building 200 single-family houses and apartments.

An informal group called Westbrook Forward collected more than 400 signatures on a petition calling for a 180-day stay on building permits for residential developments of more than 10 units. In that time, the group asked the city to revamp the city’s land use ordinance, increase the minimum lot size for new homes and enact a process for collecting impact fees from developers.

Last month, the proposed moratorium failed on a tie vote by the Westbrook City Council, so Blue Spruce Farm will likely move forward on schedule. However, councilors have pledged to develop a system for impact fees on residential developers and asked the Westbrook Planning Board to review the city’s ordinances.

“There are a number of parcels around the city that could potentially be developed for large-scale residential development,” Rielly said. “Perhaps some changes need to be made to address that type of development.”

City Administrator Jerre Bryant said Wednesday’s meeting will serve two purposes. City officials will outline the steps of the review process, and members of the public will have the opportunity to share their initial ideas with City Planner Jennie Francheschi. That input will be passed on to the Planning Board, which will begin discussing the land use ordinance at its Nov. 15 meeting.

“This forum gives a little bit more chance for some dialogue,” Bryant said.

While advocates for a moratorium were disappointed by the City Council’s vote, they will still push for reform.

“Our belief that Westbrook needs to fix its ordinances and performance standards is as strong as ever, and we will still be seeking improvements through the Planning Board and City Council,” said Bryan Bozsik, one of the leaders of Westbrook Forward.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Westbrook Middle School cafeteria.
