The Base Redevelopment Forum will feature the unique opportunity to look at the former Naval Air Station (NAS) Brunswick. In the five years since the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority’s (MRRA) redevelopment plan was approved, the authority has made outstanding progress toward its goal of transforming the former NAS Brunswick into a vibrant part of its community. The plan to attract high-quality research and development, manufacturing and maintenance jobs to the Brunswick and Topsham areas has already netted 25 business entities, with 330 new jobs created and over 600 in the pipeline.
You don’t want to miss the chance to tour this project and learn how it is transforming an installation into a vibrant community asset.
