Kent has closed on a property to build a Welcome Center with public restrooms. The Board of Selectmen was presented with the proposed building, floor plan and lot placement drawing at a recent meeting.
The proposal calls for an open porch with kiosk area, men's and women's restrooms and parking area. The plan also shows an area for a coin-operated shower behind the building. Kent is along the Appalachian Trail and officials see a need for this for hikers making a stop in the town.
The plan was presented at the Annual Town Meeting held January 21st.
