Workshop “How the Accessment Works” 7-28-14

Workshop taking place to answer property concerns in Kittery
dmcdermott@seacoastonline.com
July 26, 2014 2:00 AM

KITTERY, Maine — Given recent concerns by residents about the town’s assessment of their properties, the Town Council is bringing in assessor Bruce Kerns to answer questions of both councilors and the public.

The council workshop with Kerns will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, July 28.

Gerrish Island residents Randy Price and Mark Steffen recently filed action in York County Superior Court disputing the town’s assessment of their property.

Their property value increased by $400,000 following a town-wide revalution in 2013, resulting in a 43 percent increase in property taxes.

The couple contends that the assessing department unfairly targeted them, while other waterfront properties did not see similar increases in assessments.

Since Price discussed the issue with the Portsmouth Herald in June, Town Manager Nancy Colbert Puff said she’s received five to 10 e-mails from residents expressing similar concerns.

Kerns is expected on Monday night not only to explain the assessing process, but to also explain the 2013 revalution.

Property-Tax-Bill-AppealThe workshop, which has been called a sort of “assessing 101″ event, was requested by Councilor Chuck Denault after he received communications from residents expressing concern about their assessment.

Council Chairman Jeff Thomson cautioned residents that Kerns will not address concerns about individual parcels. He also stressed that decorum is required of all those in attendance.

Thomson has said that following the revaluation, the council did not hear a “hue and cry” from residents that their assessments were unfair.

“But now that it’s been brought to light, I do have some questions,” he said.

First day of Route 1 Bypass detours run smoothly

July 24, 2014 2:00 AM

bildeCAK0772RKITTERY, Maine — The Route 1 Bypass bridge came down in chunks of concrete and rebar Wednesday, as workers prepare to install a new bridge in its place over the course of the next month.

“Everything’s going well,” said John Auger, Maine Department of Transportation project manager, at the site Wednesday afternoon.

Route 236 in the vicinity of the bridge overpass was closed to traffic Wednesday. Workers had until 8 a.m. this morning to complete the work, but Auger estimated the road would be open by 10 p.m. Wednesday.

According to Auger, traffic on the Bypass coming in both directions “has been flowing smoothly” throughout the day. “Everyone is following the (detour) signs,” he said.

The replacement bridge is expected to be installed within 35 days. Precast pieces will be arriving on the site by early next week.

Auger said this week that special attention has been paid to ensure that Portsmouth Naval Shipyard workers are aware of the work and seek alternative routes.

Most of the 4,700 shipyard workers arrive between 7 and 7:30 a.m. and depart between 3 and 3:30 p.m. Signs directing traffic around the site have been placed near Gates 1 and 2, Auger said.

Shipyard public affairs officer Danna Eddy said the yard has used “multiple means of internal communication to ensure the work force is prepared for this road closure” — including e-mail, Facebook and internal electronic signs.

She said the MDOT has proactively provided the shipyard information about the project in recent months.

Auger said once Route 236 is open, “all we have to do is build a bridge.”

Neighbors fight Kittery condo, marina project

Gentrification fears raised by one homeowner

dmcdermott@seacoastonline.com
July 24, 2014 1:33 PM

bildeCAZ0A722KITTERY, Maine — A proposed condominium and marina project is drawing fire from neighbors, who say it would affect the small-town character of their narrow road that dead ends on the Piscataqua River.

And at least one homeowner wonders whether it will be the beginning of a gentrification of Kittery that she doesn’t want to see.

But the owner of the property says he will work with the neighbors, and has already modified plans to address initial concerns about safety and parking.

At issue is a proposal to tear down a house that currently contains three apartments, as well as a detached garage and build three condominiums. The property at 15 Old Armory Way extends to the water, where owner Ken McDavitt also proposes to build a 12-slip marina with water, electricity and internet access.

The application is in the initial stages before the Planning Board, which has accepted it as complete but in two meetings has raised a host of concerns about the plan going forward.

The plans have to be approved by the Kittery Port Authority, as well.

“Can you imagine a marina with 12 boat slips? Where are they all going to fit? It’s horrendous. I can’t believe the town is even considering it,” said Clara Newcomer, of 14 Old Armory Way.

McDavitt, of Sanbornville, N.H., said he has owned the property since 2006, and is a boater himself. He plans to move into one of the condominiums, if he gets permission for the project, and put his boat at the marina.

The dock space would be built at the end of an existing pier on the property. Parking would need to be cleared from a wooded area at the end of the road.

He said he will “absolutely” listen to abutters’ concerns, saying “this is a neighborhood.” He said he has even offered slips to Old Armory Way residents, and several said they were interested.

Terry Lochhead, who lives across the street from 15 Old Armory Way, said she is deeply concerned about the proposal. She and others have formed a neighborhood coalition and plan to get out ahead of the issue now, while plans are still in the early stages.

The biggest concern is about the parking lot for the marina, she said. “There’s concern up and down the street about how those parking spaces are going to affect the neighborhood,” she said.

Lochhead said the coalition, which currently represents about 15 people, wonders about additional traffic, noise, and on-street parking from the marina and the condominiums.

Newcomer agrees.

“Right now if the oil man comes and parks out front, someone has to wait a few minutes to get by. The street’s so narrow,” she said.

Armistead Dennett, who sold the house to McDavitt, said he is mostly concerned about the intrusion of a large dock into the back channel of the Piscaqua River. He said the channel is “rather narrow” in that area, and he’s concerned about disruption in the water.

McDavitt has agreed to increase condo parking from 1.5 spaces as allowed by zoning to two spaces. But he said this week he doesn’t want to decrease the number of boat slips.

Planning Board chairman Tom Emerson said at a recent board meeting that the marina was “the elephant in the room,” saying the number of slips should be reduced.

McDavitt said he does not want “interrupt the quaintness of the area. The buildings will have similar architecture of the Kittery Foreside area” and will be set off the street, unlike the current building, which he said could enhance views of those across the street.

“I hope to live there myself. I want to be a good neighbor,” he said.

Lochhead said she is concerned about what the project heralds for the future of Kittery.

“Kittery is a hotspot and it’s under pressure to develop fast. I think this (proposal) is the beginning of something new,” she said. “What is the future that we want? Is this a view of the future?”

She said her group plans to hold a public meeting about the proposal in the next several weeks and invites people to email the group at kitteryloveitorloseit@gmail.com.

 

Picture above:

Terry Lochhead and Tom Ryan along with residents of Old Armory Way in Kittery are banding together to fight a porposed condo and marina from being built on their street. The development would be constructed at the site of the white house that can be seen across the street from their deck.

Benjamin Cyr Kittery’s newest police officer

Criminal justice runs in the family

dmcdermott@seacoastonline.com
July 24, 2014 2:00 AM

bildeCAAQ0O9UKITTERY, Maine — Law enforcement is a family tradition for Kittery’s newest police officer.

Patrolman Benjamin Cyr is the son of longtime Newmarket, N.H., Police Chief Kevin Cyr, and said he really never thought about any other profession besides being a cop.

“I grew up around law enforcement. I love it. As far back as I can remember, it’s the only thing I ever wanted to do,” said Cyr, 22.

Cyr recently completed training at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, and is now an officer in training for the Kittery Police Department. He graduated in May from Husson University in Bangor with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

Cyr said he was in seventh grade when his father became chief in Newmarket, but he had worked for the department before that. He said growing up the son of a small-town chief was formative.

“It was a great way to meet people and get involved in the community,” he said. As he got older, he became involved in department volunteer activities such as the annual “stuff a cruiser” toy drive at Christmas.

“Seeing (officers’) interaction with the community is what spiked my interest,” he said.

He also said he was struck by the “camaraderie” among officers.

He said while he went to college in Maine, he grew up near the Seacoast and wanted to return to this area to work.

“I heard Kittery was a great department, a great group of guys,” he said. “And Kittery has got a small-town feel to it, which I like. I’m looking forward to starting my career here.”

Wood Island Life Saving Station undergoes emergency repair

As reported and printed in the Portsmouth Herald.

bildeCAN2DJ8ZWILSSA fronts bill for roof work

dmcdermott@seacoastonline.com
July 23, 2014 2:00 AM

KITTERY, Maine — A collapsing ocean-facing roof at the Wood Island Life Saving Station received needed emergency repairs this week in an effort to keep the aging building structurally sound.

The Wood Island Life Saving Station Association is footing the $3,800 bill for material, and Preservation Timber Framing of Berwick is providing the labor free of charge.

This is the first structural work done on the building since WILSSA and the town, which have had a contentious past, signed an agreement last fall allowing WILSSA to repair the exterior of the building. It also comes two months after the town received a $200,000 federal asbestos abatement grant.

Sam Reid, president of WILSSA, said the work to shore up the ocean-facing roof is critical as that section of roof is “in really bad shape.” It is sagging and rotting, he said, and the concern is that without needed temporary repairs, a domino effect could occur.

“If the roof falls in, the roof ridge pole gives out and then the whole side of the building collapses,” he said.

“The weather has beaten on that side of the building,” said Arron Sturgis of Preservation Timber Framing. “As you view the Life Saving Station from land, you don’t see the worst of the damage.”

 

He said his crew, along with about a dozen volunteers, erected scaffolding starting in the basement and rising to the roofline, and then placed 2 foot-by-8 foot and 2 foot-by-6 foot lumber against the roof to hold it in place.

Finally, they will place lightweight rubber roofing on that section of the roof. “A tarp would never last out here,” he said.

The rest of the roof “leaks like a sieve, but at least it’s not in structural failure,” he said. That holds true for the building as a whole, he said.

“A third of the building is in jeopardy, but the rest is doing exceptionally well. This place is totally salvageable,” he said. “It’s nowhere near as bad as some church steeples we’ve repaired.”

However, before the entire Life Saving Station can be repaired, there are still a number of critical steps ahead.

First, WILSSA has to raise an estimated $500,000 — $350,000 to restore the exterior and another $150,000 for repair of the seawall. The interior will not be restored under terms of the contract. About $100,000 has already been raised.

 

Before WILSSA can begin raising money in earnest, it must receive a permit from the town — which has posed a challenge.

The building falls in the town’s floodplain. Because the cost of repair exceeds 50 percent of the market value of the structure, the building would need to be elevated — adding substantially to the bottomline.

Town Manager Nancy Colbert Puff said an exception could be made that would allow exterior work to be completed to correct violations to health and safety codes. Code Enforcement Officer Heather Ross has still not made a final determination if this is possible. But she said the town and WILSSA are working cooperatively to find a solution.

 

 

 

Kittery Maine Beach Readings for 07/22 to 07/29

DE1176Once again great!

Sea Point Beach  -  5
Crescent Beach   -  20
Scuba Beach       -  5
Horn Point          -  5
Pier Beach           -  5
                               

 

What we measure is the amount of enterococci bacteria, which is present in the feces of human, animal, birds and dead ocean creatures and seaweed, in 100 millilitres of water. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency has set the standard for safe human use at 104 colony forming units (CFUs).

Five Kittery residents are working for The Maine Healthy Beaches Program, which was started in the Spring of 2005.       

Every Tuesday, residents Sally Soule, Brian Cox, Deb Martin and Alexandra Mead
collect water samples at: Sea Point Beach, Crescent Beach and the three beaches
at Fort Foster:Scuba Beach, Horn Point Beach and Pier Beach.

We put the test results in coolers where they are then picked up by the Courier from a testing lab in Kennebunk. Approximately 24 hours later, we get the testing results on the Maine Healthy Beaches website.

If any of the readings exceed the accepted bacteria level, one or more of us collect another sample at that beach only and transfer it to the courier for testing again. The next day we receive the results on the website. During this process we post a warning sign, either an orange “warning” sign immediately. If we get two bad readings in two days, we will post a beach closed sign.

Route 1 Bypass project brings major detours

detour

July 22, 2014 2:00 AM

 

KITTERY, Maine — A major construction project on a busy secondary road to Interstate 95 will begin Wednesday as the Route 1 Bypass bridge replacement gets under way.

Kittery Police Chief Theodor Short urged all motorists to be aware of the project, as there may be traffic backups at certain times while the project is under way.

Detours will be clearly marked with digital message boards as well as orange detour signs, and Short asks that everyone from shipyard workers to tourists and local traffic pay attention to them.

Northbound and southbound traffic on the Bypass will be rerouted onto the Memorial Circle for 35 days starting at 6 a.m. Wednesday. By the end of that time, a new, prefabricated bridge will be erected and ready for traffic, although workers will remain on site until the fall.

 On Wednesday only, traffic on Route 236 will be rerouted all day starting at 8 a.m.

 ”We’re anticipating it’s not going to be a huge traffic impact for what we’re doing,” said John Auger, project manager for the Maine Department of Transportation.

 The $2.8 million project involves installing a wider bridge than is currently there, as well as drainage work on Route 236. The project is being funded through a special federal transportation grant that is given to states to implement innovative solutions to highway projects.

 According to Leanne Timberlake from MDOT, the Bypass bridge was chosen as one of the projects because it is important for this bridge to be built quickly for several reasons.

 For one, the Route 1 Bypass is often used as the secondary alternative to Interstate 95 year-round, and certainly during the busy summer months.

 ”We wanted to disrupt traffic as little as possible. Kittery has been through a lot lately, with the building of the Memorial Bridge,” Timberlake said.

 

Further, the MDOT wanted the Bypass project completed before it begins the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge replacement, set to begin sometime early next year.

 

Auger said the project poses “challenges,” as there is substantial ledge at the site. Moreover, the precast pieces may or may not fit perfectly together.

 

“Think of a large Lincoln Logs set,” he said.

 

General contractor Wyman & Simpson Inc. has significant money riding on the timely completion of the project, he said. Under terms of the contract, it will be charged $10,000 a day for every day over 35 days, and will save $10,000 a day for every day under.

 

Route 236 will be closed to all traffic from 8 a.m. Wednesday through 8 a.m. Thursday. The time was chosen to accommodate morning shift traffic at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

 

Short said Route 236 was closed last week for five or six hours in preparation for this week’s work, and it provided a preview of what could be in store.

 

“We immediately encountered problems with people making U-turns on the Bypass,” he said.

 

He said that on Wednesday, police officers will be stationed on the Bypass to make sure that people don’t try to make U-turns again.

 

As for the 35-day period, he said he expects an increase in traffic from locals and shipyard workers on Wilson and Goodwin roads in Kittery and Eliot, and Route 103 in Eliot. And he does expect that, depending on the day and time, there could be traffic delays onto Memorial Circle around the site of the bridge work.

 

“This is peak volume for us. The potential is there for delays,” he said. “Whether it happens or not, we’ll see.”
