This report presents a condensed summary of activities in the Urban Renewal program in Bangor from the time of its inception in 1958 to the present day -- a span of ten years.

Bangor's program has been ambitious in scale; in attempting to renew the major portion of the central business district through the Kenduskeag Stream Project and in providing a new 130-acre subdivision development in the Stillwater Park Project area. Both projects have required a great amount of detailed planning and several innovative approaches have been developed to deal with the many unique aspects of these projects.

Progress has been steadily maintained in both projects. The Stillwater Park Project is, for all intents and purposes, complete with the exception of land disposition. The demand for residential building lots has been slow since the first offering of land was made in 1966. However, the market picked up substantially during the current year and it is hoped that sufficient development will take place in 1969 to enable the Authority to make application for a major completion Grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
