Planning Board approves committee’s site plan application


AUBURN — Members of the Lake Auburn Community Center Committee, including two youth representatives, made the pitch to the Auburn Planning Board for the Community Center’s Phase II site plan application Tuesday, Aug. 11.

The board voted unanimously to approve the application.

The plan includes the addition of new walls, a new roof and doors to the historic ice house foundation, which will be used to store recreational equipment, including the new Perkins Ridge Sno-Travelers Polaris Ranger and drag system.

Also included are plans for a new restroom, a new paved half-basketball court and accompanying rain garden area, the addition of two handicapped parking spaces near the restroom, the expansion of the Lewiston/Auburn Community Forest Board’s tree nursery and two high school wooded project areas, one on which Edward Little High School has already started a ropes course on.

With a recent grant and partnership with the PRST snowmobile club, construction of the new ice house storage facility is expected to be completed before the winter trail season with the assistance of Goodwill Take 2 volunteers.

Additional approved projects will commence as funding becomes available.
