City transfers buildings in ‘transformation’ plan to Lewiston Housing

LEWISTON — It’s been planned since last year, but now it’s official.

A collection of downtown properties owned by the city will be turned over to Lewiston Housing, a move that officials believe will give the city its best chance at obtaining a federal redevelopment grant of up to $30 million.

While those involved are expecting delays in the process due to COVID-19, they are moving forward with planning, and hoping for an application deadline sometime this fall.
