Long-Range Planning/Economic Development

In 2016 the Town of Falmouth and MaineDOT signed an agreement to faciltate redevelopment of the Maine Turnpike Ramp Area where it connects to Route 1. A Call for Offers was released through which an 11-acre parcel owned by MaineDOT would be made available to interested developers. No developer has been selected yet by the Town Council for this project and this project is currently on hold. See the link on the top left for complete 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.

A Public Forum is scheduled for April 5, 2018 at 7:00 PM.  Can't make it?  The meeting will be shown on Channel 2, or you'll be able to watch it later at your convenience.

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