State funding has jumpstarted Loring revitalization, officers say

LIMESTONE, Maine — Limestone’s former Air Pressure base is poised for a revitalization just like that of the previous Brunswick Naval Air Station.

With the $400,000 earmarked within the state’s supplemental finances for a brand new advertising marketing campaign, Loring Improvement Authority employed Steve Levesque as a advertising guide to work with potential traders.

Levesque, the previous govt director of the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, is well-versed in serving to communities revamp army bases. Together with Levesque, the midcoast authority reworked Brunswick’s former naval air base, which closed in 2011, right into a 3,200-acre enterprise park, a shared manufacturing website with 35 companies and an aviation advanced that features an authority-owned airport.
