The Navarre area is the major commercial center of Orono, providing parking for neighborhood retail and service businesses. In previous planning efforts, the municipal parking lot had been identified as a potential home for future public gathering space with facilities for tents, bands, and vendors.
Currently, the parking lot needs new surfacing and striping, providing an opportunity to engage the community about their vision for this area. The City of Orono is now looking to the community to hear what their vision is for the municipal parking lot from small scale changes that can be incorporated into a future resurfacing project to large scale capital changes that would require more long-term implementation strategies. We invite you to participate, share your thoughts, ask questions, and stay involved in the future of the Navarre area, including the municipal parking lot.
