brainstorming sessionBIDDEFORD – The ad hoc Downtown Policy Committee formed by Mayor Alan Casavant late last year had its first brainstorming session to discuss ways to improve downtown. At the Feb. 27 meeting in the mayor’s office, members discussed how to define the downtown area, parking and the creation of a downtown business district. The committee consists of Casavant and four city councilors – At-Large Councilor Marc Lessard, Ward 2 Councilor John McCurry, Bob Mills from Ward 5, and Michael Ready, Ward 7. “The first objective is to come up with a definition of downtown and then start talking about what might be needed,” Casavant said. At issue is a referendum question to allow parking meters downtown that was rejected by voters in November, effectively prohibiting their use unless approved by voters at another referendum.
