Lyman-Morse seeks Camden approval for harbor front overhaul

Fri, 10/09/2020 - 2:30pm

    CAMDEN — Lyman-Morse has submitted plans drawn by Gartley and Dorsky Engineering and Surveying to demolish and rebuild a series of buildings on the east side of Camden Harbor.

    The existing buildings, representing decades of add-ons to a boatyard that has seen multiple owners, partially burned June 13 following a fire in the back rooms of the Rhumb Line restaurant there.

    Lyman-Morse purchased the boatyard in 2015.

    New structures are proposed to replace the old buildings, if the Camden Planning Board approves following a site plan review Oct. 15.
