HAMPDEN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Hampden Town Council is taking one step closer to resolving its issue with the 2010 Comprehensive Plan.
After finding out the town's plan is not a legally enforceable document, the council voted 5-1 to submit the plan to a citizens level committee for consideration before taking any further action.
All residents who spoke at tonight's town council meeting are still enthusiastically against the current draft of the plan.
"We continue on with the plan we already have in place, which is the 2001 Comprehensive Plan," Ed Armstrong, Hampden resident, said. "It's very, very strict. Why anyone would want to make it even more strict, I just don't understand."
