Freedom to Build

In recent decades, state and local governments have instituted land use regulations that, while often well meaning, have had unintended consequences.

Minimum lot size and building set-back rules outlaw traditional attached buildings and covered sidewalks, while driving up building lot prices.

Parking space requirements and street width regulations, are likely unnecessary or excessive for a pedestrian village.

Winning regulatory freedom to implement alternative land use covenants to develop the 125 acre site as a traditional, compact, car-free Village is one of the primary challenges and objectives of the Piscataquis Village Project.
