Age Friendly Scarborough Survey

posted Sep 11, 2019, 5:30 AM by Nicole Hall

The Age Friendly Scarborough Initiative is a group of Scarborough residents who are working together to make Scarborough a more livable place for everyone. The Age Friendly Community concept is a World Health Organization vision that has been endorsed by AARP and is spreading across Maine.

Age Friendly Scarborough is starting to gather information and we need your help to go further! We hope to hear from everyone in the community.

This survey focuses on aspects of our community that are important for the health and well-being of older residents because we realize that things helpful for older citizens benefit all ages. It also explores what might help older residents age in place or age in the community.

Please take a few minutes of your time to complete this survey. Your opinions will help us learn about the strengths of Scarborough and will help us to identify opportunities for improvement as we build an age-friendly community. The survey results will be analyzed and from there, we will work together to develop action steps to address our community needs.

Your opinion is important to us! We appreciate your help!

Skate Park Access During Construction

posted Apr 10, 2019, 4:57 AM by Nicole Hall

The skate park at Memorial Park will remain open during the construction of the new public safety building. Construction fencing will restrict access to the park from three sides with access remaining open from the Durant Drive sidewalk. There will be no parking adjacent to the skate park so vehicles will need to park in the High School lot next to Town Hall.

New Brochure Mailing List

posted Mar 18, 2019, 9:14 AM by Nicole Hall

When it comes to the brochures, Scarborough Community Services will continue to post new additions and changes to our programs on our website. This is also
where all of our digital brochures reside. Brochures are usually posted online and then available in print form in our office and at the Scarborough Public Library several weeks later. 

We realize some households like to have a physical copy of the brochure they can use as a reminder to register or to mark up with notes. It is always an option for anyone to stop by and pick up a copy at no cost but we have also started registration for the brochures to be mailed directly to you!

Beginning with the Fall 2019 Brochure (typically available in July), we will offer the opportunity for any household (regardless of residency) to subscribe to the annual brochures. For $10 per year, you will receive the printed brochures in the mail prior to registration periods so that you have an ample amount of time to make plans. If you are interested in this added service, you may register in the Community Services Office at 259 US Route One in Scarborough, or online using the provided link:

Changes to Spectrum Channels 2 and 3 -- Effective November 27

posted Nov 1, 2018, 5:45 AM by Nicole Hall   [ updated Nov 2, 2018, 12:21 PM ]

On November 27, 2018, Channel 2 and 3 new locations will be on channel 1301 and 1302. This will be carried in the basic service tier. Customers will be required to have a Spectrum Receiver on each TV. If you have an existing set-top-box, digital transport adapter (DTA), or retail device with a CableCARD on each TV, you will be unaffected by this change. Otherwise, to order your Spectrum Receiver(s), please go to or call 1-844-278-3409 and Charter will ship a self-installation kit directly to your home at no additional cost. You can also visit the Windham, Saco, Lewiston or Portland Cable Stores to pick up your equipment. If you need equipment, customers are eligible to receive a converter at no additional charge for a limited period of time. Please note, if customers have TV(s) without equipment issued by Spectrum, you will lose the ability to view channels.
