Recreational Marijuana Survey

Dear North Yarmouth Residents,

With Maine voting to legalize recreational and medicinal marijuana, we are seeking to take a proactive approach to create North Yarmouth guidelines for marijuana businesses. 

We, as the Economic Development & Sustainability Committee (EDSC), are administering this survey to get an initial pulse on our community’s position. 

Thank you for participating in this survey and helping us get a better picture of what our residents think is best for our community. (Copies of this survey are available at the Town Office by request through phone or email. Please call (207) 829 - 3705, press 4 to reach the Town Manager’s office and leave a voicemail stating your name and how to get into contact with you. You may also email
