Green Design/Good Design! Join us March 16th in downtown Bath

Register today for the next Maine Downtown Institute!  The cost of energy is a leading economic development challenge in Maine.  Add historic buildings, sustainable design, accessibility, modern infrastructure and energy efficiency needs to the mix and you have a recipe for downtown revitalization that requires creative skill and adept financing to deliver.  The Maine Downtown Center, Maine Preservation and the Environmental Funders Network present a practical and thought-provoking session geared to everyone interested in retaining the authentic historic character downtown, while being protective of the environment.  This is truly a global issue of our times and is timed perfectly for the construction season.  The session will include a lively panel presentation with four of Maine’s leading architects skilled in sustainable design who will share their best examples and greatest challenges. Project Canopy/Green Downtown street tree grant opportunities will also be presented.  An optional lunch presentation by the Maine Environmental Funders Network coordinators concludes the Institute.  There will be a small additional charge for lunch.  Sponsors include the Bangor Daily News and the Department of Economic and Community Development.
