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.
