City Seeks Public Engagement Regarding Lewiston’s Riverfront

LEWISTON, ME (October 4, 2022) – The City of Lewiston announced today an open house regarding the Riverfront Island Master Plan (RIMP) to hear input from the public on the future of Lewiston’s canals, river, mills, businesses, parks, and pedestrian pathways. The area represents approximately 140 acres of Lewiston’s downtown, and public engagement is vital towards future improvements to the City.  

The open house was held Wed., Oct. 12, from 5 PM to 7 PM at the Lewiston Public Library, 200 Lisbon Street, Callahan Hall.

Lewiston’s riverfront and mill district are vital aspects of our community,” said Mayor Carl L. Sheline. Prior to the open house, Sheline said, “This gathering will be a great opportunity for people to share their perspectives for an enhanced riverfront. Talking and brainstorming together is an important part of the public process and will result in a better outcome.” 

The City has partnered with consultants from Halvorson Tighe & Bond to facilitate the Riverfront Island Master Plan, which includes hearing from residents as to how the river can be utilized as a community asset, attract new development and mix of uses in our historic buildings, improve multi-modal connections, improve downtown accessibility, revitalize and expand open spaces, and start improving our historic canals. 

Those unable to attend may visit to sign up for updates, notices of future public meetings, and provide feedback.
