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.

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.
