BANGOR – The past, present and future of both the Bangor and Brewer waterfronts were the topic of Wednesday’s Early Bird Breakfast.
This event is put on by the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce. More than 100 people registered to attend.
“We’ve been trying very hard to coordinate our efforts on the waterfront for many years now. We’ve done a lot of things jointly to try to make sure that our two waterfronts are very harmonious together. And that it all works for the actual user of the two trails,” said D’Arcy Main-Boyington, Brewer’s economic development director.
Main-Boyington says an amphitheater and fitness trail are just a few of the projects people can look forward to in Brewer.
The goal of the breakfast was to bring people together and share ideas to improve the amenities in the region.
“Whether it’s going down and letting a little bit of winter sunshine by walking along the trail or coming down and enjoying the food truck, or having lunch at Mason’s, any of those things we want people to know what opportunities are available and also what’s coming in the future so they can know what to expect,” said Bangor’s director of community and economic development, Tanya Emery.
Both Main-Boyington and Emery say they’re working together and there is a lot still yet to come for the waterfronts in both cities.
