Bangor veteran receives keys to new home ahead of Veterans Day

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) – In October, TV5 got a preview of a new subdivision being built in Bangor.

Maine Woods Townhouses are being built off of Lancaster Avenue.

Subdivision developer Emily Ellis created a program with the Maine Veterans Project to house a local Veteran in the subdivision for free.

Veterans who applied would submit a 300-500 word essay describing why they wanted to make the subdivision their new home.
