Bangor plans to buy waterfront property as sewage tank construction nears completion

Bangor plans to buy one of the last privately owned plots of land along its Penobscot River waterfront as the city looks to reopen the area to pedestrians after much of it closed for two years to allow for major sewer work.

The city applied for congressional funds to pay for the purchase of the property at 1 Dutton St., downhill from the Hollywood Casino, city manager Debbie Laurie told the Bangor City Council this week.

Laurie proposed setting aside $300,000 in the fiscal year 2023 proposed budget if the federal funding request isn’t approved, so the city could still buy the property.
