This undated pamphlet (likely published in 1963) presents "the true facts and figures as well a clear picture of Bangor's downtown Urban Renewal Plan. You will then be prepared to vote in your own best interest as well as the interest of your city -- now and for the future." The focal point of urban renewal at the time was the Kenduskeag Stream Urban Renewal Project.
Many photographs of the area considered in need of renewal are included, as are architectural concepts for the renewal plans.
In June of 1964, voters of the City of Bangor indeed did approve the Kenduskeag Stream Urban Renewal Project at referendum by a vote of 4,044 for to 3,568 against.
