WATERVILLE — Times for the final two meetings for downtown businesses and residents to talk about revitalization plans, traffic and parking have been set.

Meetings are scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, May 2, and 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 3. Both are to be held in the City Council chamber.

The meetings are the final two of five hosted by the city, Colby College, Waterville Main Street and the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce.

Downtown was split into five zones for the meetings. The May 2 meeting will be for businesses in the area of Spring Street where it meets Main Street, and the May 3 meeting will include the arts and civic district around Castonguay Square by City Hall.

One-on-one visits to businesses with a Concourse West address will be held on May 2 and 3 as well, and those businesses will be notified, according to a news release from Waterville Main Street.

A total of more than 100 people attended last week’s three meetings, and parking was the hot topic at all three, with many saying once revitalization plans come to life, parking options will be more limited.

Suggestions about what type of businesses should be sought for downtown, safety issues, traffic changes and other issues were also discussed.

The city also plans to hold public meetings on a traffic study sometime this summer.
