Your Committee on Civic Improvement, appointed by the Mayor in accordance with a vote of the citizens of Bangor at a mass meeting held May 2, 1911, begs to submit the following report: This report combines the study which your Committee has made, and that made by Mr. Watren H. Manning, Landscape Designer, of Boston, who was retained by your Committee to advise them in the work.
Realizing the need of haste on account of our short building season, your Committee has confined its study entirely to the burned district, but hopes to be able to make reports on the outlying territory from time to time in the near future.
We have tried in this report to recommend only what we considered absolutely necessary to be done at the present time by the City, looking to the future. While we have suggested plans to beautify the City, we have, at the same time tried to make no recommendations that would not in the near future repay the City many fold for the immediate outlay recommended.
