Wilton officials are looking for input from the public about improvements residents would like to see in downtown.

The town is one of four Maine communities in contention for a $400,000 Community Development Block Grant. The grant can be used for downtown improvement projects in areas considered economically challenged.

The public hearing will be held 7 p.m. Tuesday before the regular select board meeting. Residents can share their ideas for what should be a priority for improving downtown.

Wilton’s application will propose using the money to improve street level infrastructure.

Town Manager Rhonda Irish said previously that examples of possible uses for the money include sidewalks, lighting, improvements along storefronts, benches and bike racks, and updating parking lots.
