Howdy from Texas! I am a native Mainer looking to return to the State. What areas are seeing the most growth and development these days? I've heard some buzz about LA but not sure if there is any real backing to the claim. Thanks

Default Up and Coming

Hi-
Former Austinite here-now a confirmed Mainer. The area that seems to be busting at the seams with growth is Ellsworth(everything from big box stores to gourmet wine shops). I have seem a change in just the past couple of years. Hope you make it back from Texas, I am very glad I did! (though I still miss HEB's central markets and the live music in Austin....on occassion).

The mid-coast area from Rockland to Ellsworth is growing rapidly.

Lincoln and the surrounding area is enjoying vigorous growth. Lincoln has six banks and a credit union. They have a good hospital and more churches than you can count. They have 13 lakes and the mighty Penobscot River. It is a good area for professionals and craftsmen both. Take a look at Lincoln here:

I was going to say Lincoln but thought you'd all think I was nuts. Lincoln? Yes! I keep telling my friends it's the next Bangor. They're starting to believe me.

Nice site! I especially enjoyed seeing the winter photos of Lincoln. Very pretty! (Can you tell how much I miss the snow? )

The Belfast area is growing as well as Ellsworth (already mentioned). I think Lewiston/Auburn is working on cleaning up and expanding with restaurants,etc. in the Bates Mill. There's another mill expansion project coming up in Waterville (restaurants,etc)
