In contrast to the prescribed right to statewide referendum process, there is no affirmative right under the Maine Constitution which enables citizens to enact local ordinances by petition. This conclusion is in accordance with Maine law.... In conclusion, the city drafted the charter to provide for a citizen's initiative process and the city can amend the charter to limit that process. The proposed amendment is in accordance with state and federal constitutions, as well as state statute.
