Hearing June 11 on proposal to allow limited sale of cars at repair shop

The Town Council will hold a public hearing on June 11, 2018 on a proposal that would allow the Cape Elizabeth Service Center to sell up to three used cars on its lot at 560 Shore Road.

The proposal would add language to the zoning ordinance defining a repair garage, and allowing a repair garage in the Shore Road business zone to also sell up to three vehicles.

The Planning Board, after two workshops and an April public hearing, unanimously recommended council consideration.

The council referred the proposal to the Planning Board in February at the request of the Cape Elizabeth Service Center, which had been selling a limited number of repaired vehicles on its lot. The practice, however, is not permitted by town ordinance.

After the June 11 hearing the council may adopt the proposal, deny it, or refer it to the council's ordinance committee.
