The Community Development Advisory Committee was formed when the Economic Development Corporation was privately created and the Town’s Economic Development Committee functions shifted to a different focus, that of development within the community.


The Community Development Advisory Committee (CDAC) acts an advisory committee to the Community Development Department.  Its mission is to identify and prioritize the goals of Bridgton’s Comprehensive Plan.


The Committee shall report to the Select Board at least quarterly, the work and progress they have achieved on various assignments and issues. As an advisory committee, the CDAC makes recommendations to the Board for consideration. The Committee may request volunteers to assist their efforts, however such persons are not considered voting members of the Committee. The Committee may request additional authorization from the Select Board for specific activities.


Every member of the Committee shall comply with existing state law and the policies and procedures of the town including but not limited to the conduct and notice of meetings, the Town’s Ethics and Guidelines Policy, conflict of interest laws and the Town Personnel Policies.


Remote Meeting Policy-Effective 11/24/2021


Members are appointed by the Select Board on an annual basis, usually in January of each year. The Board may also appoint members during the year as they deem necessary.


The Committee shall hold regular public meetings, be responsible for the creation and posting of all agendas and the creation of the public record of each meeting in accordance with the prevailing state law. Such records shall be forwarded to the Select Board and any other entities they are working with.
