York Beach Greenway District


02/15/2024 6:30PM York Beach Greenway Public Meeting

York Beach Fire Department



The Town of York and its consultant, Town Planning and Urban Design Collaborative, invite the public to participate in rezoning the York Beach Greenway District. This is an opportunity for you to collaborate directly with friends, family, neighbors, Town staff, and Town Officials to build the community vision for over 300 acres surrounding Short Sands Road from Route 1 to Short Sands Beach. Your participation is essential to ensure that the rezoning matches the fabric of our community.

Come join the community by contributing to the vision of the York Beach Greenway. Join your neighbors in weekly public and special topical meetings or by leaving a comment below. Your words will form the recreational, environmental, and business opportunities that may come from rezoning the York Beach Greenway area.

Below is an outline of prospective new zones and the draft zoning regulations that go with them. Please comment on both by sending in a comment in the section provided below or by emailing ybgreenwaydistrict@yorkmaine.org!

Our Public Comment Period for the Draft documents is open until Feb 27th!
