Maine's largest city is receiving a $200,000 federal grant for improvements to one of its neighborhood.
Portland Mayor Michael Brennan says the grant will benefit the city's East Bayside neighborhood. East Bayside is mix of residential and commercial buildings that houses popular local breweries and a winter farmers market. City officials say Portland is one of 20 nationwide recipients of the federal grant.
Neighborhood residents and officials from the city and Greater Portland Council of Governments will gather on Diamond Street in the East Bayside neighborhood on Wednesday to discuss the grant.
