Welcome to GROWashington-Aroostook!
GROWashington-Aroostook is a regional planning process focused on job creation, modern infrastructure, and healthy, affordable communities in the counties of Aroostook and Washington, here in northeastern Maine.
Over the course of a year the GROWashington-Aroostook project team, Consortium, and Workgroups are listening to input from all over the region, examining and updating existing plans, and preparing models for the region to demonstrate our possible future(s). At a series of community meetings residents will be asked about their goals for the region - there will be separate meetings in each County - and to identify actions and projects for our community to foster economic prosperity and a regional vision that allows us to collectively Embrace the Future! Won't you join us?
Supported by a Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant from a unique partnership between 3 federal agencies (Housing and Urban Development - HUD, Department of Transportation - DOT, Environmental Protection Agency - EPA) GROWashington-Aroostook uses federal support for regionally driven solutions. It calls on local voices to define our best talent and our greatest advantages for a future community that is prosperous, healthy and economically stable.
