Renfrew to Dennis T. Strout and Denise A. Strout dated September 5, 1991, and recorded in the Cumberland County Registry of Deeds at Book 9705, Page 27, and which property has been previously depicted on a plan entitled “Settlers Village,” a standard boundary survey for Alan Renfrew by John A. Belding dated February, 1993, recorded in the Cumberland County Registry of Deeds in Book 193, Page 226, and revised December 20, 1993, and is also depicted on a “Plan of Proposed Division of Settlers Village” completed by Lost Corner Land Surveying, LLC, dated May 20, 2016; and

WHEREAS said premises together with the appurtenant easement has been conveyed by the Estate of the said Alan W. Renfrew to Brian Chamberlain (a/k/a Brian E. Chamberlain) and Beverly J. Chamberlain by Deed of Sale by Personal Representative dated November 29, 2007, and recorded in the Cumberland County Registry of Deeds in Book 25667, Page 241, which conveyance is made subject to the aforementioned contract zoning agreement; and

WHEREAS the Contract Zoning Agreement executed by the said Alan W. Renfrew and the Town of Casco provided, in substantial part, that the development of the property was to consist of certain common and individual structures designed to resemble “A small clustered colonial New England Community” to be owned, maintained, and operated as a single unified rental operation, to be laid out in such a manner as to preserve the natural vegetation and rural character of the area wherever possible; and

WHEREAS the development of the property was in such a manner which substantially, but not completely fulfilled by the terms and conditions outlined in the aforesaid contract zoning agreement, with some structures not completed and others completed in a style and of materials differing from said Contract Zoning Agreement; and

WHEREAS the time for completion of the development as contemplated in the original Contract Zoning Agreement has now passed and it has become apparent that it is neither practical nor economically viable to complete the development as originally contemplated; and

WHEREAS both Casco and Chamberlain are desirous of establishing an amended contract zoning agreement to recognize the substantial completion and conformity with the original Contract Zoning Agreement; to recognize the substantial conformance with the Town of Casco Zoning Ordinance as it pertains to a Planned Residential Development; and to fix and establish the relevant rules and regulations under which the development shall be completed and maintained; and

WHEREAS Casco has, pursuant to the provisions of 30–A M.R.S.A. § 4352(8), adopted provisions of the Zoning Ordinance that allow the adoption and implementation of a contract zoning agreement or an amendment such as that contemplated herein and that a zoning amendment is required to accommodate the existing plan and proposed design of the continued residential use of the premises; and

WHEREAS, the proposed Amended and Restated Contract Zoning Agreement has been determined to be consistent with the Town’s Comprehensive Plan by fostering the core values and goals of the plan in providing for a sense of community and planned residential development; (Town of Casco, Maine Comprehensive Plan – Pages 11 & 12) The dedication and preservation of open space;  the conservation of air and water resources quality through open space, reasonable lot density, required vegetative buffers and the protection of the rural character of the Town of Casco.  The revised development of Settlers Village will not increase the need for essential municipal services such as police, fire, education, waste disposal, and the like, and recognizes the spirit of the Town’s residential land use plan. (See also Maine Comprehensive Plan, land use, rural residential future use plan.)

WHEREAS the Planning Board of the Town of Casco pursuant to 30–A M.R.S.A. § 4352(8), and after notice and hearing and due deliberation thereon, recommended the Amended and Restated Contract Zoning Agreement, aforesaid, subject to certain conditions set forth herein; and

WHEREAS, Casco, by and through the vote of the inhabitants thereof, at a Town Meeting duly held and convened on ________________, 2017, having determined that the Amended and Restated Contract Zoning Agreement will be pursuant to and consistent with the Town’s Comprehensive Plan and will comply with the requirements of 30-A M.R.S.A. § 4352(8) and has therefore authorized the execution of this contract.

NOW THEREFORE, and in consideration of the mutual covenants herein made by each party to the other, the parties covenant and agree as follows:

1. The Property Rezoned.

Upon the effective date hereof, the Zoning Map for the Town of Casco, as recognized by the Casco Zoning Ordinance (“The Ordinance”), as amended, and on file in the office of the Town Clerk and incorporated by reference into the Ordinance by Section 4.2 thereof, is amended to provide for the amended contract zone set forth herein and depicted on a plan of proposed division of Settlers Village, West Fountain Hill Road, Casco, Maine, attached hereto as Exhibit A, which zone shall be referred to as the “Settlers Village Contract Zone.”

2.  Space, Bulk, and Density Requirements and Performance Standards for the Settlers Village  Contract Zone.

(a) The Settlers Village Contract Zone shall consist of no more than 8 principal structures, all of which are now in existence. Each principal structure shall be located on a separate lot, the dimensions of which are shown on Exhibit A. No changes shall be made to these dimensions once the contract rezoning has been approved, unless such changes meet the following requirements:

All lots shall contain a minimum of 50,000 square feet, with the exception of lots 7 and 8. No buildings shall be constructed within 20 feet of all interior roadways. No buildings shall be constructed within 25 feet of any sidelines. In addition, there shall be maintained a 50-foot vegetative buffer along the West Fountain Hill Road and a 25-foot vegetative buffer along the remaining perimeter of the Settlers Village area, as depicted on said plan. Buildings may not exceed 35 feet in height. No ancillary structure shall have a greater footprint than 24’ x 24’. Materials used shall conform with the character of the neighborhood.

In no event shall any lot approved hereby be reconfigured without an amendment to this Amended and Restated Contract Zoning Agreement.

(b) A common area has been created and is identified as shown on Exhibit A. Access to said common area shall be clearly and accurately defined with signage, pathways, and other means determined to be necessary.

(c) The interior roadways shall be private. The minimum travel way width shall be 18 feet with gravel surface with no less than 18 inches depth of gravel, and six-foot shoulders. Riprap for drainage and/or culverts as necessary shall be provided. All maintenance, upkeep and repair shall be the responsibility of a homeowners association that will take ownership of the interior roadways and common open space after the sale of more than three lots hereby created. The homeowners association shall be formed prior to the sale of any lots and membership in the homeowners association will be required by a declaration of covenants that will be incorporated into the deed for each lot. The homeowners association shall have the authority to make assessments for maintenance of the roadways and any other commonly-owned facilities. Prior to the sale of three lots, Chamberlain shall be responsible for the maintenance of the interior roadways and any other commonly owned property.

(d) The parties recognize that soil testing, septic designs, and septic installation have previously been approved by the Town of Casco and shall continue as the same now exist. Any changes to the septic design must be done in accordance with applicable State regulation and must receive the prior approval of the Code Enforcement Officer.

(e) Vegetative buffers shall be maintained as defined on Exhibit A.

(f) All additions or modifications of structures appurtenant to the existing structures shall comply with applicable Town of Casco building codes and applicable ordinances and shall comply with the provisions of this Amended and Restated Contract Zoning Agreement.

(g) All such additions or modifications of existing structures and all appurtenant structures shall be of such style and of such building materials as shall be in conformity with those of existing structures.

3.   Binding Effect; Enforcement

The above-stated restrictions, provisions and conditions are an essential part of the rezoning. They shall run with the subject premises, shall bind the owner and their successors, heirs and assigns of the said property or any part thereof or interest therein, and any party in possession or occupancy of said property or any part thereof, and shall inure to the benefit of and shall be enforceable by the Town of Casco by and through its duly authorized representatives. This Amended and Restated Contract Zoning Agreement shall be enforced pursuant to the land use enforcement provisions of state law (including 30-A M.R.S.A. § 4452) and the Zoning Ordinance. Following any determination of a zoning violation by the Court or the Code Enforcement Officer, the Town Meeting, after recommendation of the Planning Board, may amend, modify or rescind the rezoning of the site.

In the event that Chamberlain fails to develop the Settlers Village in accordance with this Agreement, or in the event of any other breach of any condition set forth in this Agreement, the Town Council shall have the authority, after hearing, to resolve the issue resulting in the breach or the failure to develop or operate. The resolution may include a termination of the Agreement by the Town Meeting and a rezoning of the Property to the prior or any successor zoning districts. In such an event, the Property shall then be used only for such other uses as are otherwise allowed by law; provided however, that no such enforcement action shall result in a disallowance of the use of any established single-family uses.

This Contract shall not affect the applicability of any provisions of state or federal law in effect from time to time not otherwise subject to the control of the Town of Casco.

If any of the restrictions, provision, conditions or portions thereof set forth herein is for any reason held invalid or unconstitutional by any court of competent jurisdiction, such portion shall be deemed a separate, distinct and independent provision and such determination shall not affect the availability of the remaining portions hereof.

4.  Governing Ordinances:

Except as may be specifically altered by the provisions of this Contract Zoning Agreement, the Property shall in all respects be governed by the applicable ordinances of the Town of Casco as they may exist from time to time.

5.  Miscellaneous Provisions:

This Contract shall be governed by the laws of the State of Maine. It represents the entire agreement between the parties, and may not be altered, changed or amended without the written consent of the parties hereto or without compliance with the requirements of 30-A M.R.S.A. Section 4352.

This contract shall become effective (“the Effective Date”) upon the execution hereof by all parties.

Chamberlain shall be responsible for recording an executed copy of this Contract and its attachments in the Cumberland County Registry of Deeds and shall provide evidence of such recording to the Casco Code Enforcement Officer.
