Brunswick Landing touts success at former Navy base

The Associated Press

BRUNSWICK — The air show planned for next month may have been canceled at Maine's former Brunswick Naval Air Station, but the redevelopment authority has been keeping busy.

The Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority says 214 private sector jobs have been created and 260 acres and 24 buildings conveyed to the private sector as of this summer. Also, more than 700 students are expected to enroll this fall at Southern Maine Community College.

The base closed in May 2011.

Executive Director Steve Levesque says the agency is projecting nearly 400 jobs by the end of next year from the current mix of companies at Brunswick Landing. Those include Molnlycke Health Care, Maine Tool and Machine, Kestrel Aviation and Oxford Networks.
