Welcome to the City of Brewer Planning Department! The Planning Department is happy to assist with providing information, answering questions, or giving guidance on anything planning related, including land use, commercial and residential development, site plans, subdivisions plans, transportation planning and data, impact fees, environmental factors, land conservation, open space, housing, and demographics.
The Planning Department also assists the Brewer Planning Board, Conservation Commission, and the Brewer Land Trust.
Questions or proposed amendments to the Land Use Code, Comprehensive Plan, Open Space and Trails Plan, and Community Forest Plan can also be addressed to this department.
The Planning Department is located on Green Point Road next to Engineering. We are a small, one-person department – me! But don’t let that give you any cause for concern. The City departments work on a team approach model which gives me the expertise of all the other departments whenever needed.
I often have meetings outside the office so it is best to schedule a meeting rather than drop by. The best way to contact me is by email but feel free to call me as well at 207.989.8431. Either way, I look forward to assisting with your projects, questions, or concerns.
– Linda Johns, City Planner
