Looks like they found some balance with the amount and frequency of concerts along with reasonable noise limitations. Maybe the promoters can book Hootie and the Blowfish with the Barenaked Ladies this summer! As far as the weird news, the questionable lawsuit will disappear in the near future or get thrown out with the garbage.

That aerial rendering on the prior page is impressive, more urban looking than I expected. If built it would be an interesting counterpoint to all the auto dealerships in this part of Westbrook.

Out of curiosity, is any of this project technically in Portland? Looking at some maps and it looks like Portland extends a bit over the turnpike into a bit of the quarry. For example, on the north side of Brighton Avenue the Motel 6 is in Portland (lucky us).

There is a small section of the property that is technically in Portland. The original Dirigo plaza plans did require City of Portland Planning Board review and approval. The City got what they wanted out of those approvals with transportation improvements in Portland paid for by the developer. Since then the City of Portland Planning board has waived joint review requirements and let the City of Westbrook Planning Board approve any site plan amendments.

Part of the adjoining land on the Portland side is owned by the city; the Council has it on their docket to sell to Waterstone with a positive recommendation from staff, but they haven't pulled the trigger yet.
