With the many capital projects (bleacher demolition,Amphitheater construction,bathrooms,a possible welcome center,sidewalks,the Goddard repurpose to name a few) and the a possible request for additional ranger activity for the dog park, I respectfully request that the Town Council revisit the "Pay and Display" system for installation at Fort Williams Park.

This request is for staff to immediately do the research on current technologies available,survey peer parks like ours, prepare a pro forma projection of potential revenues and report back at the November TC meeting for consideration and possible vote.

All Cape Elizabeth residents would display the current transfer sticker in their auto and be exempted from having to pay and display while visiting the park.
