RUMFORD — Discussion on marketing the Puiia Business Park and the implementation of the town’s Comprehensive Plan are on the agenda for Thursday’s selectmen meeting.

It begins at 7 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Rumford Falls Auditorium.

Envision Rumford! member Jim Rinaldo will speak about the Puiia Business Park on Route 108 and the next steps in marketing it.

On Dec. 19, selectmen unanimously voted to support a plan drafted by Envision Rumford! and the Western Maine Economic Development Council that would help market the park.

Glen Holmes, director of the Western Maine Economic Development Council, said then that the marketing plan would consist of three parts: distributing fliers to 2,500 light industrial companies in the Northeast that would promote the benefits of moving to the Puiia Business Park; advertising a “request for qualifications;” and advertising the business park in the New England Real Estate Journal, the “largest commercial real estate publication of its kind.”

Selectmen will also discuss how to implement the recently approved updated Comprehensive Plan.

Other agenda items include a request to consider a proposal from the Class of 1978 and a request to approve personnel policy amendments.
