Gray Village Gateway

Hamilton Parcel Acquisition


Gray Village Gateway Conceptual Drawing


In 2019, the citizens of Gray approved a Comprehensive Plan (CP) that shapes the long term vision of our town. Specifically, the approved CP establishes top priorities and goals. For example:

  • Focus on moving people safely through Gray and getting around via walking, biking, car, or public transportation
  • Protect Gray’s rural character and natural resources
  • Prioritize municipal investment in the Village
  • Invest in village and community programs
  • Strengthen community connections through town-wide events and Parks and Recreation facilities and programs
  • Create a Village downtown plan, the scope of which could include a market analysis, streetscape and design guidance recommendations, and traffic analysis with suggested roadway improvements
  • Create programs and provide services for seniors who would like to stay in the community while aging The acquisition of the Hamilton Parcel is an opportunity to secure a tangible asset tailor-made as a palette to implement the desires of our citizens and the goals of the CP

The Town of Gray has a unique opportunity to specifically bring the vision of our Comprehensive Plan to life by acquiring a key 7-acre parcel located at the center of town. The Village Gateway Project could revitalize Gray by creating a livelier, more attractive and safer village hub for residents of all ages, along with numerous potential economic and lifestyle benefits for our whole community. Gray residents can take the first step toward a better village through support of the acquisition of the strategic “Hamilton Parcel” by voting on referendum warrant articles #10 and #11 on June 8th. The rendering shown is conceptual and intended only to present “potential uses as a vision” for future study of a Village Gateway Project.
