Down East city prone to delay towering flagpole proposal once more

Columbia Falls would possibly prolong by one other six months a brief ban on main developments, together with a possible 1,400-foot tower that may double as a huge flagpole.

Voters within the small Washington County city adopted a six-month moratorium in March to provide the city time to undertake improvement ordinances that may apply to the large construction that may fly an American flag bigger than a soccer area.

The tower would anchor a sprawling veterans’ memorial park unfold out over 2,500 acres that the Worcester household has stated it needs to construct in Columbia Falls.
