Comprehensive Plan

Comprehensive Plan, amended June 13, 2007

Description:

This file contains the Complete Casco Comprehensive Plan with Maps. It is a read-only file and therefore it cannot be edited. Its intended use is for public distribution. As a .pdf file it requires Adobe Reader software to open, read or print the file. Adobe Reader can be downloaded for free from www.adobe.com.

Printing:

This file can be printed using a conventional color ink-jet or laser printer. All text and figures are formatted for 8.5" x 11" paper. On printers that do not print color 11" x 17" sheets, the maps in this file may print out anyway, automatically reduced to 8.5" x 11" sheets. Even if the files do not print, they can be viewed on a PC screen and the zoom function in Adobe Reader can vary the amount of detail and area that can be viewed at one time. There are some blank pages inserted within the file to preserve the format of the original Plan document and facilitate double sided page printing. However, the document can also be printed on single sided pages.

Preparation and Sources:

This Comprehensive Plan file was assembled and/or updated by Rick Seeley, Land Use Planning Consultant and Matti Gurney of the Greater Portland Council of Governments. The Comprehensive Plan Map files were supplied by Michael O'Donnell of John E. O'Donnell & Associates. The source files were provided by the Town of Casco.
