There will be no propane tank in Searsport.That decision was made official by the town’s planning board.After completing their evaluation of DCP Midstream’s proposal to build a 20-million gallon tank at Mack Point, the board unanimously determined that they did not meet the town’s land use ordinances, nor did they pass a site plan review.The board did decide however that the company’s construction plans passed a shore land review, but they’d need to pass all three to be approved.About 100 residents came out for the ruling, giving the planning board a standing ovation when the announcement was made that the $40-million propane terminal project will not be coming to Searsport.
