Attorney Keith Richard wins dock zoning appeal

Attorney Keith P. Richard recently successfully appealed a permit denial decision on behalf of a client in Poland, Maine.  The client applied for a permit to install a dock but was denied on the basis that there was insufficient frontage pursuant to the Town ordinance. At a hearing before the Zoning Board of Appeals, Attorney Richard successfully argued, presented evidence, questioned witnesses, and established that the Code Enforcement Officer’s denial of a permit was error. With the help of knowledgeable neighbors, the ZBA agreed that the client’s right to install a dock on his shared right of way predated the Town’s ordinance and was therefore a grandfathered use.
