Community Fair to make come back next summer

The New Gloucester Community Fair will be held on August 17, 2019. (Rain date August 18th). A small group of volunteers have teamed together to bring the fair back. It will be located at the Fairgrounds on Bald Hill Road. Additional volunteers are needed. We will also be looking for vendors, civic groups, crafters and artists.
Follow us on Facebook or www.newgloucester.com. More information will be coming in near future. Watch for our contest to come up with a new slogan for the fair!

Fairgrounds Planning Workshop

On Monday, November 9, the Town’s Parks and Recreation Committee will hold a workshop on a preliminary draft of an “Action Plan” for the Fairgrounds. The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at the Meetinghouse at 389 Intervale Road.

The plan proposes both immediate and short-term improvements aimed at enhancing the property’s use as a multi-use recreational facility. The committee has been meeting over the past year to develop the plan, and investigate options for funding improvements. The Town is in the process of applying for a Land and Water Conservation Grant from the state, which the committee hopes will facilitate the plan’s implementation.  At the workshop, the committee will explain the main components of the plan and seek public feedback.  Copies of the preliminary draft and an executive summary are available on the Planning Department page of the Town’s website http://www.newgloucester.com.
