Abstract

"City" piece on the Preble Street Resource Center, which purchased the Casco Bay Box Co. building on Cumberland Avenue in Portland last year for $600,000. The primary purpose was to relocate its teen drop-in center, which has been temporarily housed at the Chestnut Street United Methodist Church for five years. The new center will also house some administrative offices and the city-run Health Care for the Homeless clinic, which is used by about 1,600 people each year, with a total of 10,000 visits annually. During a private meeting on March 28, representatives from Preble Street, the city of Portland and Back Bay expressed concern about the center's new location. All will have a chance to publicly speak out against the project because it must go through a major site plan review, public hearings and a planning board review.
