According to the Kennebec Journal, it's back to the drawing board regarding some zoning issues within the city limits.

Winslow resident, Steve Martin, (no, not THAT Steve Martin), is seeking to change the zoning provisions of his multiple lots to mixed-use. They are currently allocated for 'residential' use. Martin wants to build a garage for his excavation business and to park construction equipment on the lots.

Apparently over the last four months the issue has been tabled at the council meetings. The city council says that Martin must let the property owners who own abutting land know in writing about his plans for the zone change. Once that's complete, the planning board will send their recommendations back to the city council so that they may proceed with a vote.

The issue had previously already been voted on and adopted by the Winslow town council, however neighbors on the abutting property continued to bring up issues with the zoning change causing the council to forego the outcome of the vote and open the issue up to public comment.
