Hmmm..this doesn't sound like a good government move to me even though the substance of what Gillway says is appropriate and normative, that an appeal should be specific to the decision challenged., The history of Mr. Gillway and the Town Planning Board on the DCP issues does not inspire confidence that this is "to protect the town" or toward modern transparent good government.
This smacks of instruction from TRC Solutions and DCP attorney's who are experts in manipulating the permitting process to their advantage.
This is about protecting him and the other officials who wrongly approved an application from "DCP SEARSPORT, LLC" in violation of town laws that required an applicant to have all other required permits. This is about protecting the town from legal liabilities that will surely accrue against the town from citizens directly harmed from that very very wrong and unlawful decision. DCP Searsport had only one mistakenly issued Air Emissions permit at the time the town deemed their application complete conferring on them protections against any changes in ordinances that would adversely affect their project.
Beware Searsport, Don't be fooled again. Make sure you are not giving up your rights to appeal any of the bad devisions Gillway and the Planning Board have made. make sure yu are not signing away your futute to DCP Midstream.
Insist on rescinding the declaration that the application is complete and then act immediately to pass a safety ordinance for Mack Point that will speak to safe size and spacing of all hazardous materials there and that will preserve the at least a 300 foot vegetative buffer all round as well as limiting the height of all structures other than cranes.
You tell Mr. Gillway to put his DCP written ordinance back in his pocket . Give him the ordinance you need for safety at Mack Pont and for appropriate mediation between its industrial uses an dthe towns over all tourist base economy..
Why do you folk still have these people as your represntatives after all this.? Clean house.!!!!

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
