March 13 — To the Editor:

Wow. Over 140 residents of Kittery came out on Saturday, March 12, 2016 to participate in the Kittery 2015-2025 Comprehensive Plan Public Forum at the STAR Theater in the Kittery Community Center. It was clear that Kittery residents are interested where Kittery is and where it is going.

If you missed the forum, you can still share your thoughts about:

1. What are your favorite things about Kittery (that you would want to ensure be preserved in the future)?

2. What are your least favorite things about Kittery (that you feel are important to change in the future)?

3. What are your thoughts regarding additional development in Kittery? What kind of development (housing, commercial, industrial) would you consider to be desirable? Where should it occur?

4. Looking ahead, what would you say will be some of the important issues we should be aware of and take into account when planning for the future? Opportunities? Challenges?

5. If you could do one thing to improve Kittery, what would it be?

6. What makes Kittery unique?

You can participate by going to:
