This Agreement is made this ____ day of _____, 2017, by and between the Town of Casco, a municipal corporation, located in Cumberland County, State of Maine (hereinafter “Casco”) and Brian E. Chamberlain and Beverly J. Chamberlain, both of Casco, in the County of Cumberland, State of Maine (hereinafter “Chamberlain”) and is as follows:

W I T N E S S E T H

WHEREAS, the Town of Casco on June 17, 1993 entered into a Contract Zoning Agreement regarding then unimproved property at Cooks Mills Road, also known as West Fountain Hill Road, Casco, Maine (“the Property”) being depicted on Town of Casco Tax Maps on Tax Map 8, Lot 14A, consisting of approximately 11.98 acres more or less, together with a certain easement to abutting property, which easement area includes approximately 1/3 acre and is set forth as a reservation in the conveyance of Alan W. 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.

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.

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.

Notice of a Public Hearing – CDBG Funds

The Select Board (BOS) shall hold a public hearing on a possible modification to the proposed and existing Community Develop-ment Block Grant (CDBG) funding projects for HUD Fiscal Years 2015 and 2016. The hearing shall take place at their regular meeting on May 24, 2016, beginning at 6:00 P.M., located in the downstairs meeting room in the Municipal Office. The purpose of the meeting is to hear public comment on the modification. The proposed modification is whether the 2015 funds appropriated to the property addressed at 55 Main Street to demolish the existing building and construct a public parking lot to serve the area can be re-directed to the 2016 year. This delay accommodates the owner’s needs. The funds would displace the funds for the construction of a new bathroom at Salmon Point which would then be directed to the current year to be spent, as this is an active project. The BOS is expected to take action at this hearing to direct staff to proceed with either project and also forward the town’s decision for funded projects, if amended, to the Cumberland County Community Develop-ment Office, take other action, or, to take no action.

For more information, contact Anne Krieg, AICP, Bridgton Director of Planning, Economic & Community Development, in person at the Municipal Offices at 3 Chase Street, by phone at 207-647-8786 or by e-mail: ecodevdir@bridgtonmaine.org

The Board of School Directors Recommends the Amounts Set Forth Below:

Total AppropriatedTotal raised  (and district

(by municipality): $ Amountassessments by municipality):$ Amount

Town of Bridgton:$7,415,536Town of Bridgton:$6,938,840

Town of Casco:5,127,049Town of Casco:4,797,463

Town of Naples:6,306,984Town of Naples:5,427,693

School DistrictSchool District

Total Appropriated:$20,995,288   Total Raised:$19,171,695

Explanation: The District’s contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12, as described in the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act is the amount of money determined by state law to be the minimum amount the District must raise and assess in order to receive the full amount of state dollars.

Article 14: Non-State Funded Debt Service: To see what sum Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will raise and appropriate for the annual payments on debt service previously approved by the voters of this District for non-state funded school construction projects and non-state funded portions of school construction projects in addition to the funds appropriated as the local share of the District’s contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12.

The Board of School Directors Recommends $1,805,097.

Explanation: Non-state-funded debt service is the amount of money needed for the annual payments on the District’s long-term debt for major capital school construction projects that are not approved for state subsidy. The bonding of this long-term debt was previously approved by the voters of the District.

Article 15: Additional Local Funds: (Written ballot required). To see what sum Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will raise and appropriate in additional local funds (Recommend $4,780,812), which exceeds the State’s Essential Programs and Services funding model by $4,409,349 as required to fund the budget recommended by the Board of School Directors.

The Board of School Directors recommends $4,780,812 for additional local funds and gives the following reasons for exceeding the State’s Essential Programs and Services funding model by $4,409,349:

1.$457,653 is the Teacher Retirement piece at 3.36% that was previously paid by the State.

2. Co-curricular and Extra-curricular activities: The State has supported an average of 10% Statewide; M.S.A.D. #61 receives about 9%.

3. Additional staffing district wide: staffing above the EPS minimums in the following areas: teachers, clerical, educational technicians (permanent substitutes), guidance and administration and seven workshop days per teacher and four workshop days per educational technician are not covered under the EPS formula.

4. Substitute pay: The State allocates half a day per student. This does not cover long-term absences due to lengthy medical leaves for long-term illnesses or for maternity leave where substitutes are paid at a higher rate.

5. Operations/maintenance of seven (7) District facilities.

6. Transportation: (includes special education transportation). This amount would encompass late buses, summer school, bus driver workshop days and our bus safety program.

7. Special Education: This additional amount is partly due to year-old student information, summer school, scheduling and reduced financial support at the Federal and State levels.

8. Technology: This includes the District initiative to provide laptops to every student grades six (6) through twelve (12), (of which grades seven (7), eight (8) and teachers grades seven (7) through twelve (12), are paid by the State); make computer labs available at the K-5 grade level and to support technology integration into the core learning areas including, English, Math, Science and Social Studies.

Explanation: The additional local funds are those locally raised funds over and above the District’s local contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12 as described in the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act and local amounts raised for the annual payment on non-state funded debt service that will help achieve the District’s budget for educational programs.

ARTICLES 16 AND 17 RAISE FUNDS FOR OTHER PROGRAMS SUPPORTED BY THE SCHOOL BUDGET

Article 16: Community Use Of Facilities: (Written ballot required). In addition to the amount in Article 15, shall Maine School Administrative District No. 61 raise $50,000 in additional local funds to keep District facilities open for community and other programs on Saturdays and school vacations, which sum exceeds the State’s Essential Programs and Services model by $50,000?

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES’ vote for the following reasons: The cost to keep M.S.A.D. #61 facilities open for community and other uses on Saturdays and school vacations is not included in the State’s Essential Programs and Services funding model.

Explanation: The additional local funds are those locally raised funds over and above the District’s local contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12 as described in the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act and local amounts raised for the annual payment on non-state funded debt service that will help achieve the District’s budget for educational programs.

Article 17: Food Service Program: Shall Maine School Administrative District No. 61 raise $100,000 in additional local funds in support of the Food Service Program?

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES” vote.

ARTICLE 18 SUMMARIZES THE PROPOSED SCHOOL BUDGET

Article 18: Total School Budget Summary: To see what sum Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will authorize the Board of School Directors to expend for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2016 and ending June 30, 2017 from the District’s contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12 as described in the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act, non-state-funded school construction projects, additional local funds for school purposes under the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 20-A, section 15690, unexpended balances, tuition receipts, state subsidy and other receipts for the support of schools.

The Board of School Directors recommends $29,378,898.

ARTICLE 19 AUTHORIZES A TRANSFER TO THE CAPITAL RESERVE FUND

Article 19: Capital Reserve Fund. Shall the School Board be authorized to transfer $250,000 from undesignated fund balances at the end of the 2015-16 fiscal year, to the Capital Reserve Fund and to expend said funds upon express authorization of the District voters?

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES” vote.

ARTICLE 20 RAISES FUNDS TO EXPEND FOR THE ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM

Article 20: Adult Education. To see if Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will appropriate $599,328 for adult education and raise $342,585 as the local share; with authorization to expend any additional, incidental, or miscellaneous receipts in the interest and for the well-being of the adult education program.

The Board of School Directors recommends that the District raise $342,585.

ARTICLE 21 AUTHORIZES THE SCHOOL BOARD TO EXPEND UNANTICIPATED REVENUE

Article 21: Expenditure of Unanticipated Revenues: Shall Maine School Administrative District No. 61 be authorized to expend such other sums as may be received from federal or state grants or programs or other sources during the fiscal year for school purposes provided that such grants, programs or other sources do not require the expenditure of other funds not previously appropriated?

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES” vote.

Article 14: Non-State Funded Debt Service: To see what sum Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will raise and appropriate for the annual payments on debt service previously approved by the voters of this District for non-state funded school construction projects and non-state funded portions of school construction projects in addition to the funds appropriated as the local share of the District’s contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12.

The Board of School Directors Recommends $1,782,970.

Explanation: Non-state-funded debt service is the amount of money needed for the annual payments on the District’s long-term debt for major capital school construction projects that are not approved for state subsidy. The bonding of this long-term debt was previously approved by the voters of the District.

Article 15: Additional Local Funds: (Written ballot required). To see what sum Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will raise and appropriate in additional local funds (Recommend $4,676,661) which exceeds the State’s Essential Programs and Services funding model by $4,260,960 as required to fund the budget recommended by the Board of School Directors.

The Board of School Directors recommends $4,676,661 for additional local funds and gives the following reasons for exceeding the State’s Essential Programs and Services funding model by $4,260,960:

1.$459,519 is the Teacher Retirement piece at 3.36%, that was previously paid by the State.

2.Co-curricular and Extra-curricular activities: The State has supported an average of 10% statewide; SAD 61 receives about 9%.

3.Additional staffing district wide: staffing above the EPS minimums in the following areas: teachers, clerical, educational technicians (permanent substitutes), guidance and administration and seven workshop days per teacher and four workshop days per educational technician are not covered under the EPS formula.

4.Substitute pay: The State allocates half a day per student. This does not cover long-term absences due to lengthy medical leaves for long-term illnesses or for maternity leave where substitutes are paid at a higher rate.

5.Operations/maintenance of seven (7) District facilities: This includes the local portion of the Songo Locks School modular which is partially subsidized by the State.

6.Transportation: (includes special education transportation). This amount would encompass late buses, summer school, bus driver workshop days and our bus safety program.

7.Special Education: This additional amount is partly due to year-old student information, summer school, scheduling and reduced financial support at the Federal and State levels.

8.Technology: This includes the District initiative to provide laptops to every student grades six (6) through twelve (12), (of which grades seven (7), eight (8) and teachers grades seven (7) through twelve (12), are paid by the State); make computer labs available at the K-5 grade level and to support technology integration into the core learning areas including, English, Math, Science and Social Studies.

Explanation: The additional local funds are those locally raised funds over and above the District’s local contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12 as described in the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act and local amounts raised for the annual payment on non-state funded debt service that will help achieve the District’s budget for educational programs.

ARTICLES 16 TO 17 RAISE FUNDS FOR OTHER PROGRAMS SUPPORTED BY THE SCHOOL BUDGET

Article 16: Community Use Of Facilities. (Written ballot required). In addition to the amount in Article 15, shall Maine School Administrative District No. 61 raise $50,000 in additional local funds to keep District facilities open for community and other programs on Saturdays and school vacations, which sum exceeds the State’s Essential Programs and Services model by $50,000?

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES” vote for the following reasons: The cost to keep SAD 61 facilities open for community and other uses on Saturdays and school vacations is not included in the State’s Essential Programs and Services funding model.

Explanation: The additional local funds are those locally raised funds over and above the District’s local contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12 as described in the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act and local amounts raised for the annual payment on non-state funded debt service that will help achieve the District’s budget for educational programs.

Article 17: Food Service Program: Shall Maine School Administrative District No. 61 raise $50,000 in additional local funds for the support of the Food Service Program?

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES” vote.

ARTICLE 18 SUMMARIZES THE PROPOSED SCHOOL BUDGET

Article 18: Total School Budget Summary. To see what sum Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will authorize the Board of School Directors to expend for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2015 and ending June 30, 2016 from the District’s contribution to the total cost of funding public education from kindergarten to grade 12 as described in the Essential Programs and Services Funding Act, non-state-funded school construction projects, additional local funds for school purposes under the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 20-A, section 15690, unexpended balances, tuition receipts, state subsidy and other receipts for the support of schools.

The Board of School Directors recommends $29,106,716.

ARTICLE 19 RAISES FUNDS FOR THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM

Article 19: Capital Reserve Fund: Shall the District raise $100,000 in additional local funds for the Capital Reserve Fund, which sum exceeds the State’s Essential Programs and Services model by $100,000, and which sum may only be expended with further authorization of the District voters?

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES” vote.

ARTICLE 20 RAISES FUNDS TO EXPEND FOR THE ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM

Article 20: To see if Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will appropriate $624,370 for adult education and raise $342,585 as the local share; with authorization to expend any additional, incidental, or miscellaneous receipts in the interest and for the well-being of the adult education program.

The Board of School Directors recommends that the District raise $342,585.

ARTICLE 21 AUTHORIZES THE SCHOOL BOARD TO EXPEND UNANTICIPATED REVENUE

Article 21: Expenditure Of Unanticipated Revenues: Shall Maine School Administrative District No. 61 be authorized to expend such other sums as may be received from federal or state grants or programs or other sources during the fiscal year for school purposes provided that such grants, programs or other sources do not require the expenditure of other funds not previously appropriated?

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES” vote.

ARTICLE 22 AUTHORIZES AN INCREASE IN THE SCHOOL BUDGET IN THE EVENT OF AN INCREASE IN STATE FUNDING FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Article 22: To see if Maine School Administrative District No. 61 will increase the amount of the total school budget and the amounts the school board is authorized to expend under the previous articles, to the extent of any unanticipated increase in the adjusted state contribution under the Essential Programs and Services funding model.

The Board of School Directors recommends a “YES” vote.

BRIDGTON WATER DISTRICT
Notice – Finding Of No Significant Impact – Notice To All Interested Persons
The State of Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), pursuant to Rules Relating to Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund (SRF), Chapter 230, Section 6 has prepared an environmental assessment for: Bridgton Water District
The Maine DHHS has reviewed a submitted environmental information document of the proposed project to receive funds from the Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund, DWSRF. From this review it has been determined the project will have no significant adverse effects and will improve the human environment of the Bridgton area. Therefore, an environmental impact statement will not be required to be prepared.
The proposed action is the determination of allocation for a new production well, through development and testing of three test wells. Once the production well site is determined a new well and associated piping to the existing pump station will complete the project.
A review of the proposed action by the DHHS has indicated that there will be no significant environmental impact. Specific locations and actions are summarized in the Environmental Assessment.
Further records to this project are on file and are available for review at the offices of Bridgton Water District, and at the Department of Health and Human Services, Drinking Water Program, 286 Water Street Key Plaza, Augusta, Maine 04333. Comments relative to this decision may be submitted to the address below.

MSAD 61 – NOTICE TO ALL INTERESTED PERSONS

Determination of Categorical Exclusion

To:  All Interested Persons

Date Issued: May 13, 2014

As required by Section 6 of the State of Maine Rules Relating to Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund Chapter 230, the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) staff prepared a “Justification for Categorical Exclusion” on behalf of MSAD 61 Songo Locks Elementary School of Naples, Maine to exempt a proposed project from the formal environmental review requirements.

The proposed action is the addition of a radon treatment system and underground storage tank.

The Drinking Water Program’s review of the proposed actions has indicated that it meets the criteria of “Categorical Exclusion” listed in subsection c (II) of Chapter 230. The project is not likely to have significant effects on the quality of the environment. Specifically, the proposed action is minor upgrading and expansion of existing facilities on the existing site.

Therefore, a Categorical Exclusion from formal environmental review, as provided in Section 6 of the State of Maine Rules Relating to Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund Chapter 230, is being granted. This exclusion may be revoked at any time if: 1) the project is altered and no longer meets the requirements of a categorical exclusion, 2) new evidence shows that serious environmental issues exist or, 3) a local, State or Federal law is being or may be violated.

Project documents are on file and are available for public review at the offices of MSAD 61 and the offices of the Drinking Water Program.  Comments relative to this decision may be submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services Drinking Water Program.
