The Planning Board of a Maine town decided the renewed plan for 55-site Acadia Wilderness Lodge Glampground is a change to the original plan and will be subject to an open hearing, a report said.

The property is located at 661 Tremont Road in Maine’s Hancock County.

The initially suggested scheme for the 42-acre property included a 154-site camping facility which would comprise 72 RV sites, 42 cabins, and tent campsites.

After a meeting with neighbors during the summer, the project representatives were able to reduce the number of structures to 55 permanent structures to minimize the impact on traffic and transient activity.

Concentrated to around 50 percent of the area, the latest application features 18 luxurious yurts, 37 glamping tents, a fitness center, playground, farmhouse cafe, and store, as well as an outdoor pool.

A total of 20 acres is being preserved for trails and the possibility of constructing homes in five years.

The members on the Planning Board then unanimously voted for an independent peer review conducted by an engineer. The study will be focusing on stormwater, hydrology, traffic impact, and septic.

Although there’s an open hearing scheduled for September 28 concerning the proposal, the Planning Board was not in favor of starting the process before the peer review’s completion.
