Birdland Residents File Lawsuit

A group of residents in the Birdland neighborhood of Westbrook sued the city on
Thursday, asking a judge to invalidate a proposed consent agreement that would
allow Pike Industries to mine its rock quarry off Spring Street. The lawsuit,
filed in Cumberland County Superior Court, contends that the agreement approved
by the City Council on Sept. 8 creates a "spot zone" for Pike, violating the
city's zoning ordinance and a related zoning enabling act.
