At the City Council’s meeting on May 21, Keith McBride and Mary Hastings of the Sanford Regional Economic Growth Council highlighted some of the recent and future business to come to Sanford, including:

  • Downhill Bagel on Main Street, Springvale
  • Knots & Bolts, a craft store, in the former Bergeron’s Shoe store
  • Dayton Trailer Sales on Route 4
  • Sebago Technics on Daigle Lane
  • Guerrero Maya, a Mexican Restaurant, will be opening at the location of the old Backstreet Grill on School Street.

Recent land purchases at Cyro Drive and Eagle Drive by the Industrial Development Cooperation will be turned into “future development lots specifically targeted towards information technology and biopharmaceutical research company development,” according to City Manager Steve Buck. McBride said Sanford is very well positioned to attract industrial development, as there is no other available land zoned for that purpose in Southern Maine.

Compliant with the National Enviromental Policy Act, York County Community College has provided findings showing that the establishment of a proposed Welding Training Facility at 60 Community Dr. would have no impact on the environment. The training facility, which will derive its building funds from the Economic Development Initiative and the Maine Industrial Alliance, will be tasked with training Mainers to work in Maine’s defense and civilian industries.
