Action Alert!  LD 201 – MEREDA Needs Your Help!

April 8, 2022 — Contact your legislators today to tell them why you support the Maine Historic Tax Credit, and why it’s so important to ensure that the bill is removed from the Special Appropriations Table now and finally enacted this year. You can find talking points on the importance of this program here. Tell your representatives that it’s important for developers to have certainty that this tax credit will be available to ensure that they can safely put projects in the development pipeline.

Developer’s Toolkit:
A Guide to Winning Community Support for Land Use Development Projects

Designed to help developers of all sizes and levels of experience, the Developer’s Toolkit is a first-of-its-kind modular document that covers all public-facing aspects of a development project, including: project scoping, municipal approval processes, public communications and media relations. In addition to general advice and MEREDA Pro Tips, the Developer’s Toolkit includes examples and templates to help developers jump-start the pre-development strategic planning process and guide developers through the project approval process.

The Developer’s Toolkit is an example of the kinds of resources, guidance, and programming that MEREDA offers its members.
