Are you concerned about housing, substance use disorder, and mental health issues in Bangor? If so, you have a chance to make a difference by speaking up during public comment at the Bangor City Council meeting on Monday, April 10th at 7:30 pm.

As you may know, the city recently received $20.48 million in ARPA funding that could be used to address these issues. However, without a comprehensive strategic plan for these crises, there’s a risk that the money won’t be allocated where it’s needed the most.

That’s why it’s crucial for the City Council to hear from you and other concerned citizens about these issues. By showing up and speaking during public comment, you can make your voice heard and advocate for a comprehensive strategic plan to address these crises.

The open grant application process for organizations to request funds may be a great opportunity, but we need to ensure that the City Council prioritizes the most urgent needs. By working together and creating a comprehensive plan, we can ensure that the funds are used in a way that benefits the entire community.

As a concerned citizen, you have the power to make a difference. Whether you speak up in person at Bangor City Hall or join the meeting via Zoom, your participation matters. By joining forces, we can help create a better future for our community.
