The Gray Village is a classic New England town center. Gray is currently working on redevelopment plans for the Monument Square Block and the Hancock Block and the Sustain Southern Maine team will be working to identify other key parcels that could accept mixed growth. Our work will be integrated with the town’s Master Plan.
We met with property owners, municipal staff and technical experts the week of March 24th to develop ideas for this site. A summary of the opening portion of this workshop, with presentations and discussion is available here. The lessons learned in Gray can be found here.
A public workshop was held on June 3rd so that everyone could provide their thoughts and input on these ideas. For the full press release about this meeting click here. At this meeting three posters were presented. The first showed an overall map with proposed uses and new road connections. The second depicted a series of example cross sections of different types of roads. The third showed a close up of proposed improvements to Portland Rd., including a connection to Center St.
