ON THE AGENDA!

A weekly look at upcoming Bar Harbor Meetings

It’s our new weekly piece documenting Bar Harbor town government and other similar meetings that we know of. Please let us know if we’ve missed something. Also, sometimes things are on the town calendars and are cancelled or rescheduled, so make sure to double check before you head over!

All the meetings take place at the Bar Harbor Municipal Building unless otherwise noted. And they usually have a time for public comment. So, go! Be informed! Be part of the process. You deserve to be.
