ARUNDEL — More than a year after approving plans for a new town hall, Arundel selectmen still face a debilitating problem — they have no place to put it. At their Sept. 28 meeting, selectmen debated three options currently on the table, concluding only that each has its drawbacks.
Of the three locations, a 4-acre field on Limerick Road has garnered the most support among selectmen, in part because of its proximity to the center of town, Eastern Trail and Kennebunk River.
It also won broad support from about 140 residents who completed a survey on a town hall move, circulated in early 2014.
“Actually, the people who took that survey said they wanted the new town hall to be as close to the current location as possible,” said Velma Jones Hayes, vice chairman of the board of selectmen, in a recent interview. “There is land there, but it’s just not available.”
