THOMASTON – Friends of Midcoast Maine will offer a workshop and discussion on Great American Neighborhoods at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2.
It will be held at the Watts Block and is designed to provide residential developers, home builders, and town officials with a set of design ideas that can be used to create the livable, quality neighborhoods that home buyers are looking for.
The workshop will be led by Beth Della Valle and Terry DeWan, primary authors of the “Great American Neighborhood: A Guide to Livable Design.”
They will discuss principles that can help developers respond to these market preferences, stem sprawl, and direct growth to selected growth areas, within the community.
To register for the workshop, visit www.friendsmidcoast.org or call 236-1077 for a brochure and registration form. The cost is $15 per person and pre-registration is required.
