Greenville selectmen mull land development

GREENVILLE — Greenville selectmen on Wednesday discussed the development of lots in the rear of the town’s industrial park.

One 13-acre parcel, which has some wetland, will need a permit and some accommodation might be involved, Greenville Town Manager David Cota said Thursday.

To have single-phase power installed to the back lots would be fairly inexpensive, but the installation of three-phase power to these lots could cost as much as $40,000, according to Cota.

If and when a business becomes interested in one of these back lots, Cota said, the town should make it as attractive as possible considering there may be some permiting costs involved. He said the town can negotiate a price for the land with the business and offer tax increment financing to help offset the costs of getting three-phase power to the site.

“We don’t have any money to do this [develop the back lots], so we’ve got to be creative in how we do this,” Cota said.

Dexter sets up Web site to boost town’s presence

DEXTER — Like many other towns and cities in the state, Dexter now has its own Web site that features information from town government and organizations.

Judy Craig Consulting of Dexter created the site, which offers a host of information relating to municipal, school and business affairs with a historical flair.

The goal of the site, according to Judy Craig, company owner, is to create a positive global presence for the town as well as provide residents with a directory of town, business, and school news and services.

Visitors this month are greeted by a home page featuring a photo from the Dexter Historical Society of a scene from downtown Dexter of the 1906 Christmas parade. The picture is changed periodically to include other photos from long ago, and each photo is accompanied by a little snippet of the event’s place in Dexter history.

The Web site can be found at www.dextermaine.org.
