[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Selectmen of the Town of Islesboro as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Development regulations — See Ch. 45.
Land use — See Ch. 125.
[Adopted 11-29-2003]
Land use ordinances require permits for the following:
Filling and earth moving activities: from the CEO or Planning Board.
Driveways: from the CEO.
Permits for houses: from the Planning Board.
Clearly the intent is before a driveway is constructed, some "body" has given a permit for its location.
The issuing authority has standards to meet prior to the permit being issued, sight lines and distances being the major ones.
If a drainage culvert was necessary due to road shoulder conditions, then it is assumed that the culvert would need to be placed within the road limits and its location so stated in the issued permit.
If upon issuing a permit for a driveway entrance onto a Town-owned road a culvert is required, then the first responsibility for its placement shall be the Town of Islesboro's.
The maintenance and repair of the culvert shall then forever fall on the driveway owner to bear.
[Adopted 7-6-2011]
It is the policy of the Board of Selectmen to supply the labor and materials for culverts installed under new driveways. Replacement culverts, materials and labor are the responsibility of the property owner. Culverts and culvert connectors may be purchased at cost from the Town.
