Revitalizing Maine Communities Conference

GrowSmart Maine is pleased to partner with Maine Downtown Center and Maine Preservation to present the Revitalizing Maine Communities Conference in downtown Augusta on June 3 & 4. For more information, click here.

This dynamic two-day conference will showcase the economic value of downtown revitalization and historic preservation. Nationally-recognized keynote speakers include economic guru Donovan Rypkema and community branding specialist Tripp Muldrow. Twenty-four workshops provide training with a focus on real solutions for Maine. Honor awards celebrate innovation, leadership and success. Networking opportunities provide memorable connections, all located in historic downtown Augusta.

Maine Downtown Center, Maine Preservation, and GrowSmart Maine have worked in partnership in the Maine Downtown Coalition, and in advocating for legislation in Augusta (like the Historic Preservation Tax Credit and Communities for Maine’s Future). We are looking forward to this two-day event that will highlight, develop, and grow the connections between vibrant downtowns, historic preservation, economic development and Maine’s Quality of Place.
