Waterfront Re-development Meeting

Thu, 09/20/2018 - 6:00pm
Town Hall, 13 School St
The Town has hired Richardson & Associates to develop a Master Site Plan for the redevelopment of the public works waterfront property.  We will be holding a Public Meeting on Thursday, September 20th at 6pm at Town Hall to:
  - Discuss Goals & Objectives 
  - Review Summary & Analysis 
  - Review Program Overview 

Waterfront Re-development Survey - What do you want in a new waterfront park?

The Town’s objective is to develop a master site plan to guide the redevelopment of the Town’s current public works property (known as Map U01, Lot 001).  The property is located on the Town’s riverfront and is underutilized given the area’s potential for recreation-based economic development.  What do you want to see in a new waterfront park?




Survey - Village Wastewater System OR No Village Wastewater System

The Community Development Advisory Committee needs your help!  A number of people in the community have asked that the town look at the pros and cons of installing some kind of waste water treatment system for the village area.  This issue arose through the Town's Comprehensive Planning process, at our October 2017 Bowdoinham Business' Meeting, during the Community Conversations sponsored by BCDI last October and has been mentioned in connection with support of business activity in town. 

Safe Disposal of Medical Sharps

Each year, thousands of Mainers use millions of syringes, pen needles and lancets or “sharps” to control medical conditions like diabetes, arthritis and allergies.

Recycling Changes for Plastics and Glass

With the recent news about China limiting their use and re-use of several types of recyclable materials from the United States, the market for certain plastics and all glass that we used to recycle has changed. We are now no longer able to sell these materials and therefore these materials need to be disposed of with your household garbage.



Most items made from plastic are marked with a number (1 – 7) usually on the bottom of the item inside a triangle of arrows.
