BRUNSWICK, Maine — The Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, the entity charged with overseeing redevelopment of the former Brunswick Naval Air Station, is forming an ad hoc design review board to advise MRRA board and staff on design at Brunswick Landing and the Topsham Commerce Park.

The board, to include three public members, will meet as needed to review development proposals and consider them against the Brunswick Landing and Topsham Commerce Park Community Design Guidelines.

The guidelines were developed by architectural firm WBRC, which has offices in Portland and Bangor, in conjunction with MRRA and the towns to align with master plans developed for the reuse of the former Navy property, MRRA executive director Steve Levesque said Tuesday.

The guidelines include a focus on sustainability, including such principles as green energy and infrastructure, renewable energy and a mix of land uses, Levesque said.
