Long-Range Planning/Economic Development

The new owner of the Falmouth Shopping Center property has proposed a development called "Falmouth Center." This project incorporates redevelopment of the Maine Turnpike Ramp Area where it connects to Route 1.  This follows a 2016 initiatve by the Town of Falmouth and MaineDOT to repurpose the highway ramp area. See the links on left for more information. 

In 2015 a Wayfinding Signage report was accepted by the Council. Staff is currently re-evaluating this project to make sure it best meets the needs of the Town. Please see the information on the left side of this page.

In 2018 the Town is working with T.Y. Lin to develop a plan outlining a future vision for Blackstrap Road. This plan will:

  • Articulate a vision for the Blackstrap Road corridor;
  • Help to identify, guide, and coordinate a range of future infrastructure investments along the corridor, including road and pavement condition, drainage and maintenance concerns, intersection alignments, and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure;
  • Provide options with regard to recommended infrastructure improvements, along with relevant cost estimates; and,
  • Prioritize implementation steps.

For additional information on this project, see the sidebar on left.

An April 24, 2018 Falmouth Developer Forum was held to explore opportunities for redevelopment on Route 1. A resource page includes the presentations shown and other materials. See sidebar on left.
