Open space plan survey

The Town of Bridgton is calling for public input for developing an open space plan to guide town leaders and conservation organizations in determining what areas will be protected for public recreation. The plan will also help decide where to construct more housing and expand town services. Anyone who lives, works or plays in Bridgton is encouraged to participate in this process by taking a public survey, which is open until Jan. 21. The online survey may be completed at Paper copies of the survey are available at the Bridgton Public Library, Bridgton Community Center, Town Office and Loon Echo Land Trust Office. The survey may also be taken over the phone at 595-3560. For more information, contact those places individually or email [email protected]
