Lewiston City Council mulls redevelopment pitches for Martel School

LEWISTON — Senior housing, a commercial development or a community hub?

Those are the options on the table as the City Council considers which redevelopment proposal is best for the former Martel Elementary School on Lisbon Street.

A week before the council is expected to make a decision, officials representing all three proposals pitched their ideas during a Tuesday workshop.

The three bids received by the city came from the Lewiston Housing Authority and Avesta Housing; David Gendron from Gendron & Gendron in Lewiston; and Auburn SHAREcenter, a nonprofit school program that collects materials to be reused by schools or other programs.
