"Building Regional Partnerships to improve our community and showcase our strengths"
It’s an exciting time for Central Maine! There’s a strong focus on economic growth and so much energy behind the redevelopment of our communities. Each project is an important piece to the overall vision, and we are all working toward a common goal of improving our community to attract more people to live, work, play and stay in Kennebec Valley. Imagine what could be achieved if we all worked collaboratively and created partnerships that supported one another. Imagine a region where every project was successful. We can only accomplish it all by working together.
