The meetings are free and open to anyone interested in learning more about this proposed project.

On Aug. 15 and 16, the town held three informational sessions on this topic and, based on comments and feedback, is holding these additional meetings in September to provide the public with updated information. New information to be discussed on Sept. 27 includes a depiction of an on-street loading/unloading zone in front of the proposed mixed-used development, additional parking spaces on the ground floor of the parking structure, sight line projections from Maple Avenue and a depiction of the most significant portion of the local environment in comparison to the proposed structures.
