Making Mid-Maine a Healthier Region to Live, Recreate, & Work

CMCBC aims to improve both the (i.) natural landscapes of our ecosystems and the (ii.) built environment by promoting, fundraising, and educating the community on the importance of making visual, socioeconomic, and environmental improvements and investments to mid-Maine’s transit corridors, key gateways, urban cores (i.e., downtowns) and scenic landscapes.

The following initiatives align with CMCBC’s mission objectives:

  1. Community & Public Health and Landscape-Based Conservation
