Seawall Repair Conceptual Design Presentation Meeting (Community Hall; 8 AM) A representative from Milone and MacBroom will present the multiple options that are being considered to repair the seawall. The seawall, last rebuilt many decades ago, is nearing the end of its life. The Northport Village Corporation (NVC) Overseers, at the request of Bayside residents, has engaged a multi-dimensional design team of engineers and landscape architects to examine the potential options previously outlined, their potential costs, and how the options could fit into Ruggles Park. Many of the seawall concepts being explored are currently on display in the hallway outside of the NVC office in the Community Hall. You can stop by any time the office is open to view the conceptual models. The meeting will include a short PowerPoint presentation from the design team followed by a Question and Answer session. The NVC Infrastructure Committee is sponsoring this meeting on behalf of the NVC Overseers. Contact Amy Eldridge at nvcmaine@gmail.com or 207-338-0751.
