LINCOLNVILLE — Select Board members heard discussion regarding sidewalks in Lincolnville Center and the formation of an affordable housing committee at its Sept. 26 meeting.

Resident Susan Silverio, who chairs both the town’s Comprehensive Plan Review Committee and the Community Heart & Soul Committee, addressed Select Board members during the public participation segment of the meeting.

“I have reviewed the comprehensive plan from 2006 and the visioning that followed over the last 16 years,” Silverio said. “All include sidewalks in the Center.”

Silverio asked the board to consider this issue as an upcoming agenda item. She also requested that the Select Board consider forming an affordable housing committee.

Select Board Chairman Ladleah Dunn agreed that both should appear on upcoming Select Board agendas.

Town Administrator David Kinney opened the meeting with his report. He reminded senior residents that the deadline for applying for property tax relief is Dec. 1. Kinney also noted that applications for wood from the Waldo Woodshed are due by the middle of October. Residents can complete the applications by visiting the Waldo Woodshed website. Kinney also stated that half-year tax payments were due by Oct. 4 and that application for absentee balloting are ongoing at the Town Office.

“We have to have the ballots available a month before the election,” Kinney said. “We anticipate getting those in early October.”

Select Board members voted to close Martins Corner Road from November and approved one item as Board of Assessors.

Prior to the formal meeting, board members walked the site of the athletic facilities on Lynx Drive. They had expressed concern about the maintenance and upkeep of those areas. The Select Board will attempt to do a similar tour with members of the Lincolnville School Committee in the future.
