Building Begins on Scarborough’s Habitat for Humanity House


Looking glamorous in safety glasses and face masks, Town staffers pitched in to help build the Habitat for Humanity house, located off Broadturn road.

Staffers from the Planning Department SEDCO, the Library and the Fire Department spent a snowy day in February installing insulation in the first home in Habitat’s 13-lot subdivision.

The Scarborough subdivision will be Habitat’s largest project in Maine.

Tom Hall Addresses Chamber of Commerce

Town Manager Tom Hall addressed members of the Scarborough Community Chamber of Commerce on February 11, 2016 at their annual membership meeting.  Town and Country Federal Credit Union hosted the meeting at their new administration building in Oak Hill.  CEO David Libby was there to greet chamber members while staff members led guests on tours of the new facility.

In his presentation, Hall updated chamber members on local investments in the community from both the private and public sectors. He also highlighted some innovative projects and discussed the Town’s methods of engaging community members in Town governance. This year marks the fifth year in a row that the Town Manager has met with the Chamber in what has become known as the “State of Scarborough” presentation.
