Under Canvas Acadia to return to planning board in Surry
Site plan review application continued to March 11

SURRY—Glamping, or glamorous camping, is one step further toward a home in Surry after the Bozeman, Montana, company Under Canvas presented its site plan review application to the planning board February 26—and to the crowd that filled the fire station/ meeting room, a last-minute venue change because of an anticipated high attendance.

Under Canvas proposes 123 tent locations, on permanent wooden platforms, with a low-flush toilet, pull-chain shower, small sink and wood stove, and a partly gravity-powered septic system on 12 acres of the 101-acre former hay farm at 702 Surry Road.

Public comments were largely in favor of the project. Opposed to the project were the site’s abutting neighbors.

“My attitude has evolved,” said George Borowsky. “They have been responsive and exhibited a certain amount of flexibility.” He did request that agreements Under Canvas has made be made conditions of the application.
