Boat racks at Great Pond
Applications for permits to store boats on racks at Great Pond are being accepted through March 22. Permits will be awarded by lottery March 25.

The Town of Cape Elizabeth is opening application for 32 seasonal boat storage slots at Great Pond for town residents for 2013.

Formal boat storage began at Great Pond three years ago. The Town was provided an easement over the area, which is owned by the Sprague Corporation. The owner was concerned that the haphazard storage of boats was degrading the environment adjacent to the pond, and required a more formal boat storage arrangement as part of the easement.

The Town will issue permits for boat storage slots using a lottery system. Any town resident who would like to store a boat at Great Pond should submit an application by March 22 to the Office Manager, Assessing/Codes/Planning Office, Town Hall. Only one application per household may be submitted.

The lottery will be held on March 25, at 9 a.m., in the ACP Conference
Winners will be notified and will have until April 1 to pay for their 2013 Boat Storage Permit ($20). Any permits
remaining after that date will be distributed in a second lottery drawing from the original application pool.

At the end of this boat storage season, the Conservation Commission will
conduct its annual review. This review will include periodic monitoring
reports of boat storage use at Great Pond. See 2012 report.
