Shine the Light + Share the Love: Waldo County

The success of an awarded grant represents a tremendous amount of work on many levels and should be celebrated as a collective win for each community and the state at large. Join us as we take a minute, shine a light, and share the love with all who have contributed to infrastructure projects across Waldo County, representing over 8,000 locations, $39 million in ConnectMaine and MCA investment, and $13 million in leveraged investments.

These projects are at various stages of planning, permitting, building, and completion! We are excited to celebrate each of these projects with where they are at now, and in recognition of where they will be in the near future.
