Downtown Parking Improvement Project Update - 2023

The Town of Andover has initiated a comprehensive Downtown amenities project to enhance the municipal parking lots (last reconstructed in 1986), accessed from Barnard, Park, and Bartlet Street. The project aims to reconfigure the parking area to better accommodate pedestrian and vehicle flow, improve drainage structures, and will create a centralized gathering space behind the Old Town Hall that can be activated for outdoor dining, live performances, and other community programming
