Thomaston considering two housing proposals for town green

THOMASTON, Maine — Voters in Thomaston will be deciding the fate of two housing development proposals Tuesday that could help broaden the town’s tax base and provide housing for both older adults and people with disabilities.

Both development projects are slated for Thomaston Green, which was the site of the former Maine State Prison, but is now an open greenspace. The town has been looking for ways to develop the space in a way that would economically benefit the town for about the last decade.

Town officials say the proposals going before voters this week would achieve development goals the town has been searching for.
