When considering where to make investments, I always think of where the return is going be made.
Looks like Maine’s 3 metros are increasing their share of the state’s GDP.
What is most striking is that the rest of Maine is in decline compared to the 3 metro areas, with Portlandia leading the pack. Bangor and L/A are slowly recovering from the downturn and growing as well. Urbanists rejoice!
