New Gloucester Special Town Meeting

The Town of New Gloucester will be holding a Special Town Meeting on Monday, November 16, 2015 at 7:00 pm at AMVETS, 1095 Lewiston Road. Voters will be asked to consider three warrant articles. Two of the articles involve the town’s ongoing efforts to revitalize the Upper Village area. One article is a resolution asking citizens to support efforts to promote a village orientation in the Upper Village by implementing strategies consistent with a master planning effort. The second article seeks to amend the zoning in the Upper Village to promote a viable village center there.

A third article asks citizens if they’d like to move the Annual Town Meeting from Monday evenings to Saturday mornings.

Copies of all warrant articles are available at the Town Office front desk and on the town website at www.newgloucester.com. Copies of the proposed zoning amendments are available on the Planning Department page on the Town’s website and at the Town Office front desk. For more information, contact the New Gloucester Planning Office at 926-4126 x4.
