Green Downtowns!

Maine Downtown Center

The Maine Downtown Center‘s Green Downtowns! program is designed to accomplish two primary goals: strengthen the link between the natural and built environment in Maine’s historic downtowns to make them more environmentally responsive and ecologically conscious and strengthen Maine’s downtowns by building local leadership and community capacity to support sustainable green initiatives. Grant funding through the Maine Community Foundation's Environmental Funder's Network helped launch this program in 2009. We encourage these guiding principles be adopted in every downtown in Maine.
