Biddeford, Maine is poised between a hardscrabble past and a hopeful future. This old mill city has been on decline for decades with the last textile company closing in 2009. Faced with stagnant population growth and limited job opportunities, the City has been working to reinvent itself.

The Heartworks Downtown Master Plan project aims to accelerate this revitalization and engage the City’s distinct neighborhoods to take ownership for the City’s future. Using storytelling, neighborhood meetings and community forums, citizens are reexamining their core values and setting new goals for the future.
