Federal Grant To Build Visitor Center In Greenville 

The federal government is spending $250,000 to help bolster tourism in Greenville. The money will be used to build a visitor center on Route 15.The Maine DOT will donate a 4.5 acre rest area to the project creating a 25-acre facility in the moosehead lake region. It will be used as the main office for the Natural Resource Eucation Cnter, which provides outdoor programs. The current center operates out of a rented storefront in downtown Greenville.The town is looking for other non-profit groups to share the facility with. “We hope to have an NREC office there as well as the Chamber of Commerce will be located there” says Tom Obrey, the Vice President of NREC, “several other NGO’s will be located there to help offset the maintenance cost we’re hoping to find some other like minded groups that would like to share some office space.”
