More than a year ago, a group of Mt. Desert residents, business owners, and municipal officials came together to form the Town’s Village Center Committee. Tasked with formulating a plan to improve the aesthetics, flow, and safety of the “downtown” area of NE Harbor, the Committee employed the services of Maine based landscape architecture firm, Richardson & Associates. In addition to lending their own expertise and knowledge to the process, the Committee also circulated a community wide questionnaire and hosted several very well attended public workshops where ideas and input were shared to shape and complete the plan.
Note: The conceptual drawing covers all three phases of the entire plan (see below) and incorporates the potential for private projects such as new infill structures, etc.
