YOU CAN STILL JOIN US - IN SEPTEMBER MAP FALL WORKSHOP
We gathered in Portland for some planner conversation and good cheer! Thanks to those who joined us for our spring event. If you missed the Portland event, think September, and Bangor - the original June workshop had to be postponed.
Join MAP in Bangor for an outdoor tour in the fall (postponed from June).
Downton Bangor Walking Tour - SEPTEMBER 10
Friday, September 10
Walking Tour: 3:00PM
Social Hour: 5:00PM
Location: Bangor City Hall, Maine
Stroll downtown Bangor and meet up with the city's landscape architect to see a new downtown park going under construction, a local architect to review a recent historic building rehabilitation, the city's Community Development Officer to see how CDBG funds help our downtown, a local business owner to talk about how they fared during COVID last year and their hopes for this year, and others that are planned to step out on the stoop to chat. We will finish up our walk at West Market Square at the outdoor restaurant Blaze.
