Don’t allow industrial use

To the editor:

We are writing to encourage everyone who cares about the future character of Old Orchard Beach to attend a public hearing at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 10 at the town hall.

Under the direction of the town manger, the planning department and the planning board are working to allow high impact industrial uses on the Ross Road and Portland Avenue. They want to change the rural district zoning to now include heavy commercial uses.

This change is precipitated by the recent snowballing expansion of a small business that has been allegedly operating illegally against code for approximately 15 years.

Please consider the importance of the public hearing and join us tonight to discuss these potential changes in our neighborhood.

Mr. and Mrs. Walter Murphy Old Orchard Beach
