Riverfront Island Master Plan
Lewiston's Riverfront Master Plan Strategy
The RIMP Update begun in 2022 is now complete. The City would like to thank the consultant team, led by Halvorson Tighe & Bond Studio, for their work. The update to the original plan includes the canals, the riverfront trail, and Simard-Payne Memorial Park and Veterans Park, and explores better access from Lisbon Street to the riverfront, as well as including a market analysis to assist the City in its economic development efforts in this part of the downtown. The Riverfront Island Master Plan Update will be a guiding document for municipal expenditures to improve pedestrian connectivity and to improve engagement through upgrades to public spaces.
A public engagement website was developed at the Riverfront Island Web Page for the duration of the update where the public could answer survey questions, make comments, and get more detailed information on the status of the update work.
