Input sought for plan to redesign Maine city’s downtown
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — State and city officials are seeking the public’s input about an $11 million plan to make improvements to downtown Waterville.
The project would change the downtown area to two-way traffic, reconfigure parking and improve pedestrian areas, among other changes. The project is scheduled to go out to bid in October, the Morning Sentinel reported.
Officials are taking public comment on the project until Sept. 4.
Construction is expected to begin in April and reach completion in summer 2022, officials said. The project is funded by federal, state and city money as well as $1.5 million from Colby College and private donors.
Waterville Mayor Nick Isgro said the project will result in “a completely new and redesigned downtown.”
