The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, which plans a new museum complex on Winter Street, will go to the city planning board Tuesday, Dec. 17 for a pre-application meeting.

The meeting starts at 5:15 p.m. at City Hall.

CMCA plans to move to 21 Winter St. and has announced a $4 million capital campaign to raise money for the purchase and renovation of the property. It has submitted drawings by architect Toshiko Mori to the city Code Enforcement Office. Drawings show a glassed in area around the entrance and a courtyard with small trees. Gartley & Dorsky is providing engineering for the project.

The nonprofit organization is moving to Rockland from its present location in Rockport in hopes of gaining better access and visibility.
