Union park not likely to come to fruition, town manager says

By Stephen Betts, BDN Staff

UNION, Maine — Selectmen will hear an update Tuesday evening about a possible park but the town manager said the project is unlikely to move ahead.

On the agenda for the selectmen’s meeting is discussion of a possible park on Route 131 next to Sennebec Pond. Town Manager Jay Feyler said the issue was first raised a little more than a year ago when the town acquired a parcel through nonpayment of property taxes.

Feyler said the town contacted the Land For Maine’s Future agency to see if it was interested in acquiring the parcel to create a park, but the group declined because of the small size of the lot.

The property is less than an acre, the town manager said.

Feyler said a selectman asked that the matter be placed on the agenda simply as a follow-up discussion since it had been raised earlier by another board member who is no longer on the board.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 4 at the town office.
