The Westbrook Common is one of the most visible, centrally-located public spaces in the downtown with the potential to become a vital destination activated by adjacent businesses, community activities and events.
Please join the community initiative to PLAN THE COMMON in Downtown Westbrook. Visit www.planthecommon.com to learn more, take a survey, or be a part of the discussion forum. Your feedback is important!
The City has appointed a Steering Committee made up of members of the public, including representatives from the City, Planning Board, and Discover Downtown Westbrook. The design team from Milone & MacBroom had its second meeting with the Steering Committee on Friday, March 29 in advance of the Cornelia Warren funding application.
The City recently sought funding for the revitalization of the Common from the Cornelia Warren Community Association. To date, the project team has been working to prepare preliminary sketches showing possibilities for the Common redesign. These sketches are being used to aid the application process, illustrating what is possible and serving as a tool for estimating potential costs. Please check out the concepts and weigh in on the forum.
The project team will hold the first of several workshops sometime in late June. Stay tuned!
