Seaview Terrace residents denied an agenda/due process yet again Several of us went to the last meeting to speak at open to the public against the rezoning. I asked to placed on the agenda that night if possible since we were there, or this meeting here. No comment, the next speaker up, a business man from Bar Harbor, didn't even ask to be placed on the agenda and City Council motioned to put him on for that night.


Seriously, City Council/Hall treats their unworthy worse the a bag of dog dung.Now they expect us to lay down as they pave over us. Good thing I've hung in there for 3 years. It's all clear as today. No fog, no clouds,

All residents in residence on Seaview Terrace have signed a petition against attempts to rezone our residential, dead end street, 12 single family homes, 18 ft wide st., no curbs/sidewalks,sewers. drainage, flood plain, flood zone, to a new zone- Housing and Healthcare- with intent do away with all housing as stated in the overview plan by City Planner, Wayne Marshall. City Hall still has not made R2 (our current zone) public- won't provide public documents of the Planning Boards approval for the proposal. Either the planning board corruptly approved, or they did not approve and City Planner, Wayne Marshall is pushing ahead.


Just like the Capt Al Steven School. Conditions for approval requiring an engineer inspection of the storm drainage and an impact study for runoff to the water shed residents (many, including Seaview Terrace), both of the critical conditions to protect the residents from flooding were never done. The City Planner illegally channeled most of the runoff to private property. Saving the 2 1/2 million dollar storm sewer improvements to Miller St for his visions. Housing out, business in. They all say so. It's a vote. "Putin" on the Happy Video...sick.
