Do you think Colby’s revitalization help for downtown Waterville has been a good thing for the city?

As the $11.2 million downtown revitalization project approaches its last few months, the city of Waterville and Colby College plan to begin a new phase of envisioning how the area around downtown Waterville might look in the future, from the south end of Front and Main streets to the Hathaway Creative Center and Elm Street.

Additionally, the college built the Lockwood Hotel at the south end of Main Street, which has a restaurant and bar, Front & Main, on the street level. Colby also rehabilitated buildings across the street into an arts center, Greene Block + Studios.

As the joint effort moves forward to its last phase, what do you think of their plans for the city? Let us know what you think the poll and comments below.
