The South Portland Maine Mall site has been selected as a pilot location for a Transit-Oriented Development Concept Plan as a part of the current PACTS work plan. GPCOG staff has been working with transit stakeholders, municipal staff, and the development community to create a vision for the area that identifies potential opportunities for increased density and mixed-use development that supports and encourages transit use.
The final plan will identify potential policy and infrastructure improvements that encourage transit use and strengthen the region’s transit network. This project will demonstrate the value of TOD planning in the region and help support similar projects moving forward. A draft plan is tentatively scheduled for review in December, 2019, with a final plan scheduled for completion in January 2020.
