LELAND — It could get less complicated to sell your old stuff in Leland. Leland Planning Board will consider several text amendments that regulate yard sales in town limits Tuesday.

Besides cleaning up and rearranging the code, changes include removing the “unnecessary” requirement that items be removed overnight and removing a requirement that non-residential yard sales must operate with a permit.

According to the proposed changes, non-residential parties are permitted temporary outdoor sales vis tents and grand openings under the town’s Temporary Use regulations. Currently, yard sale regulations restrict commercial and non-residential property from operating without a permit unless the party is a non-profit establishment, operating for a non-profit cause.

The change would remove a current requirement that limits yard sale activity between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. If Council ends up adopting a recommendation from Planning Board, items would not have to be removed overnight. Also, hours of operation would be updated to “dawn and dusk.”

View the proposed changes. Leland Planning Board will meet Tuesday, March 26, at 6 p.m. at Leland Town Hall.
