About the Event:

Buffet Breakfast: 7:30 – 8:00 a.m.
Program: 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.

Housing has become a large topic of conversation in service center communities across the state.  Businesses, families and individuals are being impacted by Maine’s recent economic trends; rising construction costs, rental affordability challenges and limits on the supply of both market and affordable housing options are hampering communities in different ways.

An overview of recent portfolio sales of apartment properties, in the Bangor market, will be presented.  In addition, a regional summary of multi-family housing development will be provided.

Make plans to join us in Bangor on June 4th at Hollywood Casino to learn about Bangor’s recent months long study of its housing issues and hear about what City officials and area partners are doing to impact the supply, quality and affordability of housing in the Queen City.
