Jackson is proposing to strike its permit provisions regarding access roads to Route 7, Moosehead Trail Highway, at its annual meeting at 9:30 a.m. March 20 at the Community Center.

The current ordinance establishes specific criteria and a permit process for property access to the road to maintain the road’s primarily wooded landscape by creating a managed access area. Subdivisions can only be designed with one common access point to Route 7.

Currently, people wanting to create an access road must go before the road commissioner and Planning Board to get a permit for such access. If the proposed change passes, those requirements will be abolished, but the state permitting process will remain.
