Camden Street revisioning workshop Sept. 27
Rockland — The Rockland Economic Development Advisory Committee, in partnership with Friends of Midcoast Maine, will host a public workshop Thursday, Sept. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Breakwater Marketplace, located at 91 Camden St.
This is the second workshop of a series of public meetings REDAC is hosting to develop a vision for Camden Street from Maverick Street to the Rockport line. According to Joanne Billington, chairman of REDAC, “At our June public meeting we heard from numerous residents that people were interested in creating an identity for this area. That will be the purpose of this meeting in September.”
The two-hour workshop will focus on answering two key questions. What makes Rockland unique? What do individuals value about Rockland?
Audrey Lovering, Rockland Community Development director states, “If you live, work, shop in Rockland, REDAC wants to hear your opinions. We need your help. Be a part of the planning for this section of our community.”
This series of workshops and technical assistance is provided in partnership with Friends of Midcoast Maine, a regional non-profit organization that assists communities in planning their future. Executive Director Jane Lafleur noted that “these workshops will focus on the issues Rockland people care about and will bring in assistance to address economic issues, walkability, safety, traffic and commercial and residential diversity. The goal is to engage citizens in planning the future for this area of town, incorporate the things they care and provide opportunities to create a place that fits in with the rest of Rockland.”
All are invited. Refreshments will be served.
