03/01/2021: The Comprehensive Planning Committee (CPC) is presently studying how to preserve one of Bowdoinham’s most important and fast-disappearing resources: its scenic rural views. We are asking for public input to identify the rural views that are most distinctive and what they would like to see the town focus on preserving. Scenic rural can be any rural views along roadway corridors, or areas of the town where open spaces still dominate. Specific viewsheds like the panoramic view of the bay from Bay Road and views from trails will be taken up in later studies.
