The Committee felt it important to keep an open vision on what is strategically best for the waterfront’s long term purpose and use.
For example, town leadership should uphold a planning and development objective to make the waterfront a special place that is better than the status quo; something unique that sets Damariscotta apart; and defines the town as a coastal center. Said in another way, project improvements should not only provide function but also be visually smart and attractive.
For instance, upgrades and improvements to Riverside Park should consider expanded seating areas, new hardscape, enhanced landscaping, and the use of a boardwalk and/or decking. Other ideas for improvements to the waterfront area include new information kiosk-type panels to illustrate Damariscotta history, aquaculture, and environmental protection of the river.
