What if we could find ways to build economically stronger, more successful towns and cities in Maine through strategic, high impact investments?  

Build Maine returns to Lewiston with a day-long program of dynamic, nationally renowned speakers.  Looking to go deeper into the innovative tools for doing more with less?  Join us the day before Build Maine for technical, hands-on 201-Level Workshops.

Build Maine brings together all people participating in the act of building our cities. The builders, funders, elected officials, engineers, lawyers, planners, finance institutions, and rule-makers converge annually to share best practices and aspirations for moving Maine forward within the political and economic climates of today.  

Build Maine introduces cutting edge business practices and focused conversations with nationally renowned leaders in the fields of street design, real estate development, and public service, demonstrating a breadth of knowledge we can apply locally.


Please join us on June 8 & 9 at Bates Mill 1 in Lewiston for Build Maine, where we will explore ways to invest wisely in our future.

Build Maine is hosted by the New England Chapter of the Congress for the New Urbanism, Maine (CNU Maine) with the Maine Municipal Association (MMA), and the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA).

We hope you will join the conversation.
