Lewiston readies multimillion-dollar redevelopment plan

LEWISTON — The city and local organizations working to reel in a downtown redevelopment grant worth between $10 million and $30 million are moving ahead with their application without knowing an official due date.

In the spring, as the COVID-19 pandemic shifted priorities for municipalities, officials said it would likely cause delays in the Choice Neighborhood program, which seeks to redevelop and spur investment in Lewiston’s Tree Streets neighborhood, one of the poorest in the state.

Since then, officials have been mostly in the dark regarding the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s timeline for soliciting applications, but have continued pulling together Lewiston’s entry.
