SCARBOROUGH — The Scarborough Economic Development Corp. will host a public meeting in the Council Chambers on Nov. 16 at 6:30 p.m. to unveil a conceptual plan for a project on Elmwood Drive.

Currently, the town is considering a zoning change, from a residential zone to a bio-medical research zone, for the six-acre Maine Department of Transportation-owned parcel situated across from the Maine Medical Center Research Institute on Route 1.

Residents of the area have expressed concerns that potential development of the space would be disruptive and increase traffic in the community.

Harvey Rosenfeld, Executive Director of SEDCO, said the property has attracted a serious buyer.

“This would be very good for Scarborough,” Rosenfeld said.

The potential buyer and development plan will be revealed at the meeting on Tuesday. Rosenfeld said this project is contingent upon the town changing the zoning for this parcel from R2 to BOR.
