A majority of people who attended a forum for Tremont (Maine) on January 6 favored tighter enforcement of camping areas.

The forum was held by the citizens’ group that is looking to amend the town’s land-use law, according to a report.

Thirty-six out of 50 decided that the town should prohibit campgrounds altogether.

Present at the forum were Jamie Thurlow, select board chair, as well as James and Kenya Hopkins, owners of Acadia Wilderness Lodge. They didn’t participate in any of the debates.

The campground is the center of the citizens’ protest to prevent the development of campgrounds in residential areas. The Planning Board approved AWL’s application on Nov 1 for a 55-yurt “glampground”.

Everyone was permitted to vote at the polls, even the Hopkins.

The outcomes are likely to pressure the select board, which has to determine on January 24 whether it is appropriate to extend the moratorium against the development of campgrounds by another six months. The moratorium is set to expire on January 29.
