At the upcoming Kennebunkport Planning Board meeting at 7 p.m. next Wednesday, Binnacle Hill will be presenting a sketch plan for review of Phase 2, a proposed 12-lot cluster subdivision connecting to the approved 15-lot Binnacle Hill Subdivision on New Biddeford Road.

If Phase 2 were to eventually be approved, it would create one large subdivision consisting of 27 lots less than a quarter of a mile away from Goose Rocks Beach. My intention is to make people aware and to think about all of the subdivisions currently in construction around town.

Now may be the time for the town Planning Board and residents of Kennebunkport to push “pause” and think about the cumulative impact these projects will have. Goose Rocks is a special place in our town, and making sure the health of the beach and its community is preserved should take special consideration.
