RUMFORD — The Rumford Sidewalk Committee will meet from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 22, at the Rumford Falls Auditorium.

The meeting is scheduled to take place an hour before the town’s 6:30 p.m. selectmen’s meeting.

Selectmen voted 3-1 in 2014 to forgo a bid process and hire a Livermore Falls firm and its Yarmouth design team to engineer plans to revitalize the downtown, including an estimate to develop a design to better engineer and reconstruct downtown sidewalks.

The first phase of the plan consisted of concept-level base mapping, aerial photos and the creation of a graphic master plan of the downtown sidewalks for an estimated $11,500.

The second phase consisted of base mapping, design development and construction documents, layout and administration at client direction for an estimated $30,400.

Jennifer Kreckel, president of local economic development group Envision Rumford!, told selectmen that the engineers of the project would be at the meeting to answer questions and present some of their design plans.
