The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee, Department of Planning & Development, and North Star Planning are pleased to submit for adoption the 2024 Yarmouth Comprehensive Plan. Over the last 18 months, the Steering Committee has worked with the Department of Planning & Development staff and North Star Planning to bring forward an updated comprehensive plan. The document is the result of significant public engagement, not just the formal public hearings and meetings, but also a series of informal Com-PLAN-ion events, as well as thoughtful public comment from the community and the Town Boards and Committees.

The Steering Committee is also pleased to share that the Municipal Planning Assistance Program of the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry found that the 2024 Yarmouth Comprehensive Plan is complete and consistent with the state’s Growth Management Act. The state has determined that the consistency finding is valid through May 15, 2036.
