SCARBOROUGH — The Zoning Board of Appeals will continue its deliberations of a proposed park at Scarborough Beach in March.
Black Point Resource Management, the private operator of Scarborough Beach State Park, wants to create a sister park next to the state park. The plan for Black Point Park calls for a new entrance, a gatehouse, parking for 500 vehicles, a concession stand, changing rooms, showers and bathrooms. Those features would be built on 64 acres owned by the Sprague Corp., the parent of Black Point Resource Management.
More than 100 people turned out in opposition to the project at the Zoning Board of Appeals' meeting Monday.
Around 11:30 p.m., the applicant asked for the matter to be tabled in order to review and address citizen concerns, according to David Grysk, the town staff member liaison to the board.
The project needs a special-exception permit for a commercial outdoor recreation facility from the Zoning Board of Appeals. The project would also need approval from the Planning Board.
