Just got word that the Appropriations Committee of the Maine Legislature has approved two bills:
LD 742 extends the sunset on the Historic Preservation Tax Credit by ten years, to 2023. This means the great work accomplished across Maine can continue, as historic buildings are renovated for reinvigorated re-use! This is great news for Maine's downtowns and our economy, given the jobs created and the quality places brought back to life.
LD 584 provides $25,000 to the Maine Downtown Center. Check out the great work done there at http://mdf.org/mdc_overview.php.
