When Scott Klinger moved to Gardiner about a year ago, he found a lot to like.
“There’s a really amazing history to the town for lots of different reasons,” Klinger said. “The signage that’s gone up in recent years has been great, but I think there’s probably more that can be done.”
He said he hopes for something that makes Gardiner a desirable destination that draws more visitors, such as a museum or other attraction.
Klinger was one of more than a dozen people who gathered Thursday at the Gardiner Public Library for a presentation on the city’s proposed downtown master plan, which is nearing completion.
The Heart of Gardiner plan, which has been in the works for about a year, outlines a series of recommendations intended to strengthen downtown Gardiner’s sense of place, build economic vibrancy and help the city and its downtown develop environmental resilience.
