Wiscasset approves Chewonki Foundation girls’ camp

The Wiscasset Planning Board approved Chewonki Foundation’s girls’ camp after a quick public hearing June 10. A few members of the public were present, but none had questions about the project. The board did a site walk two weeks ago.

After the public hearing, the board just as quickly voted to approve the project, which will add seven girls’ cabins, two staff cabins and a wash house, at a site near the main building, and will add a separate girls’ dock. The meeting, which began at 7 p.m., adjourned at 7:15 p.m.

Chewonki believes it will soon have a state Department of Environmental Protection permit and begin construction.
