Town Analysis & Planning

In 2014 and 2015, czb worked with the Town of Millinocket in north-central Maine on a strategy to guide the town’s future development after the closure of the Great Northern Paper mill, which once drove the area’s economy. czb team members met with local officials, conducted focus groups, analyzed economic trends and data, and circulated an online survey designed to gauge how Millinocket residents felt about the future.

“The czb analysis just underscored the need for more volunteer efforts in the area and helped motivate a flood of contributions to the activities highlighted on his website which actually launched last December,” said one native Millinocket resident, whose site had raised about $13,500 for various community projects in Millinocket. “The czb study certainly accelerated the pace of the fundraising — it’s crazy how fast.”

czb’s letter to the Millinocket community expressed the necessity of rejecting business-as-usual, embracing risk, and committing local resources to the work of making Millinocket more appealing and competitive.
