Lower Village Master Plan Project

The Lower Village Master Plan Project is a project involving the Town of Kennebunk and its citizens, in consultation with Harriman and Sebago Technics.

This process, planned to be complete by the end of 2017, will strive to address these issues:

  • Can we improve traffic flow and connectivity? 
  • Create design standards for businesses that preserve the feel of the area?
  • Make the streetscapes safer and more attractive for those living, working and visiting the area? 
  • Find ways to make Lower Village’s personality stand out and shine?

To answer these questions, there will be numerous opportunities for public input, from community-wide meetings to open houses, from workshops to online information, from social media to news articles and more.

These discussions began in early June 2017 and are anticipated to end by the end of the year. The Town will then use the plans developed with public input to seek state monies and other funding sources to make the plan a reality.
