Bangor celebrates Y groundbreaking

Posted Sept. 23, 2010, at 12:32 p.m.

Bangor Y CEO Mike Seile announced in February a $2.6 million project, which will expand its Second Street location, close the Hammond Street facility for good and consolidate all programming into one building.

Thursday, Sept. 23, groundbreaking began on the expansion.

In 2009 and early 2010, the Y quietly acquired several parcels on Second Street and Sanford Street to allow for expansion of the Second Street location. In July and August, several buildings were demolished, and Seile said a few others would come down later this month.
