2.L&L—Anne Ball

The Maine Downtown Center supports Main Street corridors across the state by teaching local officials, merchants and others a range of skills—market analysis, how to use greenspace to revitalize urban areas and more. Some of that training is now available on Bendable Maine. But the center isn’t just a producer of content. It’s also a consumer, directing community leaders to Bendable to learn about fostering diversity and equity, among other things. “We sometimes have a need for content I don’t necessarily produce,” said Anne Ball, director of the center. “But Bendable does.”
