Scarborough bans synthetic pesticides on town property
The Forecaster - 9/22/2011.
By Mario Moretto – Scarborough: The town's fields, playgrounds and other public properties will be synthetic pesticide-free under a policy adopted Wednesday by the Town Council. The policy, which calls chemical pesticides "a major environmental problem and a public health issue," began as a conversation between town officials and members of what is now known as Citizens for a Green Scarborough.

The Cornville Planning Board ruled Tuesday night that the proposal to truck soil from the C.N.

Planners said the proposal is not farming, but an industrial and commercial use of land.
