A second meeting focusing on issues impacting downtown Cumberland will be held Thursday evening at Windsor Hall. A July 18 meeting drew around 150 people, most of them downtown residents or business owners, and led to a number of concerns being aired including: loitering, panhandling, foul language and inappropriate attire. Ed Mullaney, Downtown Manager, said he believes a follow up meeting is being held in part to let people know that the first session wasn’t just for show- that there is a serious desire to address any problems downtown. He has stressed that solving these problems is going to take a community wide approach.
