City of Belfast, Water District to receive $1.9 million to reconstruct Front Street
BELFAST – The U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) has announced that the City of Belfast and the Belfast Water District have been awarded a grant in the amount of $1.9 million through its Public Works program. These funds will be used for the reconstruction and enhancement of a significant section of Front Street in Belfast, with the intent to facilitate economic growth in this area of Belfast’s working waterfront.
In particular, the project will make more efficient the operations of two of Belfast’s largest employers, Front Street Shipyard (a premier, world-class shipyard) and Penobscot McCrum (one of North America’s largest suppliers of superior, value-added potato specialty products). JB Turner, president of Front Street Shipyard, remarked, "At Front Street Shipyard we are continuously grateful for the remarkable support for our growing business from the local level all the way to the federal level. This grant will enhance not only our waterfront and our city, but also our prospects for future growth as an entire community." Gordon Pow, senior vice president and chief financial officer for Penobscot McCrum, added, “This project is one of the best things that could happen to the City of Belfast and for the future of Front Street itself.” Walter Ash, Belfast’s mayor, was similarly overjoyed at learning of this award. “This is terrific news, and a great opportunity for the City of Belfast to assist its existing waterfront businesses.”
