2014.05.28 Council Meeting Item 10


Order on a Limited Development Agreement between the Town and Casco Bay Hockey Association regarding the construction of a new ice rink on property owned by the Town and commonly known as the Village Park Ice Rink. 

A public comment period will be included with this item (5 minutes). 

ACTION: Council action is anticipated


The Casco Bay Hockey Association presented to the Town Council on January 27 their proposal to partner with the Town of Falmouth and Falmouth Family Ice to improve the Village Park Hockey Rink by building a seasonal, refrigerated, covered hockey rink pavillion to be operated November to March. For more information about Casco Bay Hockey Association,  visit their website at www.cascobayhockey.com.

This proposal will require two actions by the Town Council if it is to move forward. First, the Town Council will need to amend the Zoning and Site Plan Review Ordinance to allow the structure in this location as well as exempt it from site plan review in order to meet the anticipated construction schedule. Second, the Town Council will need to enter into a Limited Development Agreeement that will, among other things, identify the terms and conditions of a lease if the Town Council chooses to lease the land to the Casco Bay Hockey Association. 

A redline copy of the proposed Limited Development Agreement, showing the changes made since the public hearing on May 12, is attached.
