Springdale Avenue, a main thoroughfare through Dover’s Village Center, is about to experience significant change due to the redevelopment of the Caryl Community Center, and future redevelopment projects at 10 Springdale Ave and potentially 14 Springdale Avenue. In anticipation of these changes, the Town seeks to create a cohesive vision for the Springdale Avenue streetscape which may potentially lead to a rezoning effort to ensure that any future development is complimentary to the character of the town and is of maximum benefit to residents.
The Planning Board will be assisted by Civic Space Collaborative to help Dover define the future of the Village Center.
The Planning Board kicked the project off at their meeting on September 7, 2021. The Board met with its consultants, Civic Space Collaborative to discuss the Village Center and project priorities.
Dover COA and the Planning Board held a virtual Coffee & Chat on Thursday, November 18 at 10:30am. Seniors and community members joined the Planning Board and Civic Space Collaborative to discuss the future of Dover's Village Center.
