BETHEL – Action on a sign application and continued work on a subdivision amendment will occupy planners at their meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 24, in the town office.

The application is for Janet Black’s Design business at 2 Mechanic St., while the amendment involves an $800,000 project and investment in the community by Western Maine Supply owners Frank and Robert Lowell. Consultant Don Murphy of Main-Land Development Consultants Inc. of Livermore Falls is representing the Lowells at the meeting. Murphy said the Lowells are seeking a site plan review amendment to build a single drive-through building materials warehouse to replace existing multiple storage sheds at 33 Cross St.

The proposed manufactured steel structure, which is 121 feet wide by 230 feet long, will be located behind the existing retail store and office building. It also complements earlier remodeling and exterior finishing of the existing structure.

The drive-through warehouse building project, as it has been tagged, will replace an assortment of seven older storage sheds totaling 11,206 square feet on approximately 1.25 acres.

Prior to the Planning Board’s meeting, the Sign Committee will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the town office to discuss Black’s application.
