ELIOT — A group of residents in the southern Maine town of Eliot have created a website to fight a proposal to bring a strip club to town.

A half dozen residents created www.keepeliotsafe.com in opposition to a businessman’s plans to open a club with nude dancing on Route 236.

More than 100 people show­ed up at last week’s Board of Selectmen meeting in support of two proposed ordinances that would prevent the club from opening in town.

The board meets again Thursday night, but a lawyer representing businessman Donald Denunzio has vowed a legal battle if the town tries to block the club.
