Wells Gateway Community Design Workshop

September 15, 2006 By Scott Richardson Filed under Article Tags: communitywells gateway

We recommend the Wells Gateway Community Design Workshop at York County Community College on September 18, 19, and 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 each evening (go 1, 2 or all 3 nights). The workshop organizers will also have a drop-in session on the 19th between 9 and 5.

Wells is a small town with traditional New England character. Its rural and even urbanized areas have exceptional natural resources, as well. These include Depot Brook, a wild trout stream that runs through the heart of town. And its sandy beaches, so rare in Maine, are the foundation of Wells' thriving tourist industry.

These outstanding qualities attract ever-increasing numbers of seasonal tourists and new year-round residents. In the coming years, how should the Town plan to accommodate its growing population, while preserving the cultural and natural features that make Wells so special?

Bring your vision of the Wells Gateway Area to the Community Design Workshop and share your ideas with architecture, transportation and community design specialists. The Gateway Area is located between the transportation center and the Route 109/1 intersection.

For more information call 205-5758. This workshop is a project of the Town of Wells, Maine Sea Grant, the Wells Reserve, and USEPA.
