Gorham considers master plan with Windham

From Town of Gorham

GORHAM – The Gorham Town Council recently approved a decision to apply for Community Development Block Grant money to allow the town to work with Windham on a master plan for Little Falls and South Windham village. 

The town council intends for the master planning process to create a unified vision for the future of the village with the intention of improving the livability and economic vibrancy, and enhancing the character of the area.

The preliminary goals are to examine current conditions including the previous study area; determine what may still have value or relevance for implementation from the previous plan; assess the attributes that contribute to the walkable village “feel” such as streetscape, sidewalks, pedestrian scale lighting, transportation, business/employment, recreation, parks, trails, historic resources, architecture, and housing.

The town council hopes to conduct focus groups that include local residents, to update the land use regulations, to determine coordinated land use strategies, to review parking requirements, and to determine historic building numbers with assessment from the Main Historic Preservation Commission. 

All of this will need to be finalized in a working document between the two towns, which would be created after Gorham receives the grant.
