We are keeping this newsletter short, as the holidays are approaching. We will send a separate News Blast later in the month if anything else notable arises. We hope you have a great holiday weekend and that the sun comes out soon!

MaineDOT launches “on-demand” presentation to gather input on a Carbon Reduction Strategy
MaineDOT is poised to receive $29.9 million in formula funds over 5 years from the new DOT Carbon Reduction Program, including $5.75 million in the first year, of which $3 million can’t be spent until a state Carbon Reduction Strategy is developed. As part of developing a Carbon Reduction Strategy, MaineDOT has launched an on-demand presentation about the strategy that will be open through July 31st to gather public input and invite comments. MaineDOT is particularly interested in comments and perspectives from rural stakeholders.
