Detail For Show: Old Town, New Village


Show Description:

In 2008, Prime Tanning, Berwick's largest employer, closed after 70 years and left 11 acres of tired industrial buildings abandoned in the center of town; the land beneath was filled with hazardous wastes. Town officials and a group of volunteers, Envision Berwick, worked to get the site cleaned up and to find a way to revitalize the property. Berwick Community Television has been working for almost a year on a documentary video of those efforts. The video includes interviews of town officials and volunteers, former Prime employees and owners, and historic photos, film and video. The Town of Berwick has succeeded in attracting a developer, Great Falls Construction of Gorham, Maine, to return the property to being a vital town center.

Notes to Stations About This Show:

This video shows how a group of residents came together for a common purpose, to clean up and revitalize their downtown area. It covers how Prime Tanning helped our community during the boom years. However, by the time they shut down completely, they owned a major portion of our downtown and it was now filled with industrial waste.
