43 & 91 Douglass Street - Neighborhood Mtg. Notice

Dear Neighbor,

Please join Maine Cooperative Development Partners and The Szanton Company for a neighborhood meeting to discuss our plans and proposed zoning amendment for the Douglass Commons Neighborhood proposed at 43 & 91 Douglass Street.

Meeting Date:  Tuesday, August 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

Meeting Locations:  Jewish Community Alliance, 1342 Congress Street, Portland

Maine Cooperative Development Partners and The Szanton Company are working with the City of Portland to create Douglass Commons: an affordable, green, transit-oriented, walkable, neighborhood at the site of the former West School (43 & 91 Douglass Street), adjacent to Dougherty Fields.

In order to accomplish the goals of the project, we have requested a re-zone of the parcel from R-5 to the R-5a zone. This would allow for a planned residential unit development (PRUD) that would accommodate our proposed 108 units of housing.

For more information, maps, notes and presentations from previous neighborhood meetings, and zoom and phone links, please visit: Please RSVP, ask questions, or join our email list by emailing Liz Trice at

We look forward to connecting with you.
