Veterans can enter to win a free townhouse in Bangor

A United States military veteran has the opportunity to win a free townhouse in Bangor this November.

A new subdivision is being built on a 12-acre parcel off Lancaster Avenue near Essex Woods. By the time construction wraps up in about a year, there will be 30 duplexes, or 60 single-family units, Maine Woods Development owner Emily Ellis said.

Concrete was recently poured for the townhome that will go to the veteran who wins Maine Woods Development’s giveaway. It will be finished by Veterans Day on Nov. 11, when keys will be given to the winner and the neighborhood’s first resident, she said.
