Update: The Dover Waterfront Project

Update: The Dover Waterfront Project

Greetings, the Dover city waterfront process kicks into high gear this year.  Dover continues to be a destination for many and the waterfront development is a critical component. As a community we have one opportunity to get things right!  After approvals have been inked and constructions begins we will have to live with and embrace the final product.  Below is an important message from the Waterfront committee.  Hopefully I’ll see all of you at the meeting Tuesday Jan. 19th.

A Message from the Chair
Jack Mettee
Dear Friends of the Waterfront,
The waterfront project continues to move forward. The city council has approved the agreement with Union Studios for the conceptual design of the City‘s waterfront parcel. The design team has already begun its work, and we plan to have preliminary conceptual designs ready for presentation at our next CWDAC meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016. We hope you can make this important meeting. We’ll be sending out additional information closer to the meeting date.As you may know, there have been some changes to the membership of CWDAC. Recently one of the original members of the committee, Steve Brewer, resigned upon a move to Raymond where Steve is now the head of the public works department. Steve was a very key member of the committee. He was active in both the 1996 and 2005 design charrettes for the waterfront and he was instrumental in helping the committee to prepare the design guidelines for waterfront development. He will surely be missed.

We have recently added two members to bring our total back to twelve (12) or full membership. First, was the addition of Matt Cox who attended his first meeting in
November. A lawyer and lifelong Dover resident, Matt will bring a great perspective to the committee. Most recently, we have added Robbi Woodburn who currently resides in Dover and will bring her talent as a highly-regarded landscape architect in the Seacoast. Below are brief bios of each. Welcome to both new members.

Once again, thank you for your support of our efforts to develop our historic waterfront. We would like to hear from you about any thoughts or ideas you may have about redevelopment of the waterfront. Please contact me or any of the Committee members via the e-mail addresses provided in the newsletter.

On behalf of the Committee, have a joyous holiday season and we looking forward to seeing you on Jan. 19.

Your Chairman,

Jack Mettee
