India Street planning open house this Saturday

If you live anywhere in the East End, consider dropping by the Maine Jewish Museum this Saturday to share your $.02 about the future of the India Street neighborhood. Some details from one of the project's consultants:

The Sustain Southern Maine regional planning grant (for more information go to our website) includes a series of "pilot community" locations where we work with local officials  property owners, business owners, and residents to look at their neighborhood and its potential to absorb portions of the regions projected growth.  One of these centers is the India St. neighborhood.  Together with the City of Portland and the India St. Neighborhood Organization, we will be having a public open house on March 16th at Maine Jewish Museum to solicit public input which will inform the project going forward.  This will include a visual preference survey, a walking tour, and talks from the Portland Society of Architects and Greater Portland Landmarks.
Drop by anytime between 12:30 and 5:30. The walking tour goes from 1:30 to 2 pm,  from 2:30 – 3 pm the Portland Society of Architects will give a presentation called “How new and old architectural styles look amazingly cool together,” and at 3:15, Greater Portland Landmarks will give a presentation on “India Street’s evolving role in Portland’s commerce.”
