Facade Public Info Open House

Share This!

There will be an Information Meeting held on Thursday, May 5, regarding the Town of Bridgewater’s newly announced commitment to the creation of a Façade Improvement Program.

The meeting will take place beginning at 8 a.m. and run until 10 a.m. in the Committee Room of Town Hall, located on the second floor at 60 Pleasant Street in Bridgewater.

Recently, Bridgewater Town Council endorsed the concept of a Bridgewater Façade Improvement program, designed to augment buildings in the King Street Architectural Control Area, located in the community’s downtown core.

Pending Council’s official budget approval for the project in May, the program will be administered and overseen through the formation of a Façade Improvement Society. The Society’s Board of Directors will be responsible for reviewing applications and selecting the projects that best fit the objectives of the program.

Anyone with questions about the Façade Improvement Program or an interest in serving on the Society’s Board of Directors is encouraged to attend the meeting.
