Save Blue Hill
This is a petition to stop the commercialization of our beautiful coastal town, Blue Hill Maine. As a town, we are currently at a crossroads. Will we let big corporate businesses like "Family Dollar" infiltrate our little oasis? Will we become a grey, sunken, town with failing local businesses who cannot compete with national chains? No. We will not. We must come together as a community and fight for our neighbors, for the future of our town, and for the brave men and women who have dared to start their own small businesses here. By condoning the opening of "Family Dollar," we are not just allowing one big business to come in and disrupt south street. By agreeing to let them open up shop, we are allowing them to destroy the local business that are already in place, and to snuff out the soul of our hometown. Stop the development, stop the commercialization, save our unique and historic coastal town.
By signing this petition, you are asking the town to deny the developer permission to build, as well as requesting the creation of a more comprehensive list of ordinances (and or creation of a zoning board) that would protect our home in the years to come.
