BUCKSPORT - The future of the former Verso paper mill property continues to top Bucksport's economic development agenda.

Town officials are holding an open house Tuesday, October 17th. They're asking the public to stop by and write down ideas about what they'd like to see happen to the property.

 

The town's economic development director said residents can stop by anytime during that day.

 

Economic Development Director Rich Rotella said "We want to do it this way because we fell that people will be able to write down their ideas on a sticky not and not be chastised, not be afraid to speak what they'd like to see."

 

The more than 270-acre site is owned by American Iron and Metal.

 

The redevelopment plan is being funded by a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.
