Corinth approves 6-month solar moratorium, prohibits medical marijuana storefrontPosted by On


Corinth residents voted not to allow a medical cannabis store to open on Main Street, approved a temporary ban on commercial solar developments and stopped the town from buying a new building to house the town office during the annual town meeting Tuesday evening.

The temporary ban on commercial solar developments will give the town 180 days — roughly 6 months — to draft rules and regulations for future commercial projects that may look to establish in Corinth, the ordinance states.

With the temporary moratorium approved, Corinth joins other Maine communities, including Glenburn and Dixmont, that have instituted bans or restrictions on solar developments. Other communities said they fear that solar farms would use up land that could support housing or agriculture, while others worry how the solar panels would be decommissioned and disposed of appropriately in the future.
