Community Development Week 2024

The City Council recognized an important milestone marking fifty years of community development programming and funds that have been distributed nationwide. Bangor is one of just five Maine communities that receive CDBG funding on an annual basis. During National Community Development Week, many towns and cities place additional emphasis on the programs enabled by these funds. Beginning in 2024, The City of Bangor will also use this time for increased engagement and to emphasize resident involvement in planning. To begin, staff believe that a few well-organized events will be followed in future years with more participants and robust energy.

NOTICE: The Wednesday, April 3 Film Screening event has been postponed to April 24.
