Eastport Development & Growth Effort (E.D.G.E.)

Formerly the Downtown Committee

Eastport City Council established the Downtown Committee on April 21, 2003. Its mission was to protect and sustain our historic downtown through authentic preservation, economic development and cultural activity and to benefit the community at large. This mission has now expanded to all of Eastport, reflected in the Committee's new name, the Eastport Development & Growth Effort.

The Committee’s responsibilities include: working with local businesses, non-profit organizations; economic developers, cultural entities and governmental agencies; applying for and administering grant funding for projects; contributing to the city's Comprehensive Plan and Downtown Revitalization Plan and serving as advisers and administrators on matters relating to the economic well being of Eastport.
