Scarborough Community Center Survey

posted Oct 11, 2019, 6:51 AM by Colette Mathieson   [ updated Oct 11, 2019, 6:53 AM ]

The Scarborough Ad-Hoc Community Center Advisory Committee is tasked with assessing the level of interest in a community center and evaluating the
available options for building such a center in Scarborough. The Committee evaluation will include understanding desired amenities, anticipated operational costs, and associated construction costs. 

The Downs and Edge Sports Group is planning to build a private facility that would include an indoor ice rink, and indoor and outdoor turf. They have proposed partnering with Scarborough in some capacity to include a community center into the recreational facility they are planning to build. This proposal shows potential options that the Ad-Hoc Committee is currently analyzing.

The objective of this survey is to gauge the level of interest in a Scarborough Community Center from the residents of Scarborough and neighboring towns and gather information regarding amenities and fees. This information will assist in the Committee’s analysis. 

Please complete the survey below.  One response per adult in household, please.

Emergency Street Light Repair - September 30

posted Sep 27, 2019, 10:47 AM by Colette Mathieson

This Monday, September 30, emergency repairs to the lights at the Route 1/Black Point Rd/Gorham Rd intersection will take place. It is possible the lights
will need to be shut off during this time and traffic will have to be directed by a Police Officer in the middle of Oak Hill. If that is the case, traffic will be affected. We have scheduled this work to be done after 9am so as to avoid the major commuter traffic. Night work was considered, BUT due to safety concerns for the officers it was decided to do it during daylight hours.

Tax Bills Mailed

posted Sep 12, 2019, 1:04 PM by Colette Mathieson

Tax bills are printed and the print shop reports that they are on their way in the mail. We have been assured by the software company that maintains our
assessing records that their system will be updated with complete property cards by the end of business tomorrow. While we are happy with the ahead of schedule mailing of tax bills we recognize that the delay in online property cards is frustrating. As soon as the system is updated and the cards are available we will let you know!
