MRRA has developed community design guidelines for Brunswick Landing and the Topsham Commerce Park that will translate the vision of the NASB Reuse Master Plans into a vibrant “live, work, learn and play” environment. These guidelines will ensure consistency and quality in community design, will protect and enhance values and sense of place, and will set standards fo sustainability and energy conservation.
The intent of these guidelines is to provide greater clarity to citizens and developers on design, with an emphasis on guidance, not requirements.
The Community Design Guidelines are broken up into sections to accommodate the document’s large size. Click the links below to access the Guidelines.
