The Lincoln County Regional Planning Commission would like to meet with local officials from all Lincoln County towns to conduct a municipal survey. To date, the LCRPC has completed surveys for eight Lincoln County towns. It is now seeking completed surveys from Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor, Dresden, Edgecomb, Jefferson, Monhegan Island, Newcastle, South Bristol, Southport, Westport and Whitefield.

The aim of the survey is to learn about town projects; assess current needs and potential barriers to new projects; and find ways the RPC can provide support and assistance. The survey also aims to identify what issues or needs are shared by multiple towns and how they can be addressed collaboratively.

The LCRPC wants to interview two to four individuals, including members of town selectboards, planning boards, code enforcement officers, road commissioners, and other municipal leaders with perspectives and experiences on town land use, economic and community development and other planning projects. The interviews can take place via Zoom, by phone, in person with COVID-19 precautions or by completing printed copies of the survey. Surveys have so far resulted in providing support with ordinance review and development; identification of more projects is under way.
