LISBON — The town will host a community forum on the Route 196 “northern” corridor at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, at the Town Office.

Residents, landowners and business owners are invited to participate in a forum to discuss the needs, vision and priorities for the northern section of Route 196. The area between the Lewiston town line and Moody Road represents the “gateway” to Lisbon, as well as an area for potential commercial growth.

The planning effort focuses on the roadway and land uses along Route 196, looking at issues of future growth, traffic, visual character and infrastructure. The goal is to develop a master plan that will reflect the community’s vision and help guide the town’s decisions on how best to serve this area of town, how to support new opportunities and how to maintain community values and enhance community character as growth and change occurs.

For more information, go to, under the Planning Board page, or call 353-3000.
