Kennebunk Lower Village Streetscape Plan

Kennebunk, Maine

Harriman is currently engaged in creating a streetscape design for the Lower Village in Kennebunk, Maine. The streetscape design will complement circulation improvements along the streets that converge at Coopers Corner. This prominent crossroads is poorly suited to the flow of vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians that pass through it. The Town is seeking a more coherent design that enhances the appearance of the area, better contributes to its economic success, and is a fitting civic transition to nearby residential areas.

Harriman is responsible for the landscape architecture, urban design, and community participation for this multi-disciplinary effort.

Now in the early stages of planning, the streetscape process includes careful consideration of the relationship between abutters, nearby uses, and parking to create a pragmatic design that provides a better relationship between the streets, sidewalks, crosswalks, and open space. Among other capabilities, our professional team is contributing its specialized skills in visualizing changes with three-dimensional modeling and other tools to convey the potential improvements to the visual character and functional operations of this mixed-use area.
