This year, five towns cut much of the budget for the troubled and debt-ridden Gr
This year, five towns cut much of the budget for the troubled and debt-ridden Growth Council of Oxford Hills. They hope to dissolve the organization and merge it with Community Concepts, which is also involved in projects related to workforce development, housing, and micro-lending. Brett Doney brought impressive credentials to the Growth Council and led it until 2006, choosing to buy and develop sites to attract business, a sometimes risky gamble. He says the Growth Council helped bring modular housing companies to the area and brought the Western Maine University and Community College Center to South Paris. Some say Doney's approach was risky and not grass-roots-based, and that the results did not live up to his promotions.
