The City of Bangor has a new Director of Development, and it's someone who is very familiar with the City and its inner workings.

Anne Krieg joined the City of Bangor in 2019 and became the City's Planning Officer. But she transitioned into her new role as Director of Development officially on January 2nd. Krieg is no stranger to municipal service, spending a good deal of her career helping cities like Bar Harbor, Bridgton, and Bangor grow.

She has served in various positions throughout her twenty-plus year municipal career, including Director of Planning, Economic and Community Development in Bridgton, Maine, and Planning and Development Director/Public Information Officer in Bar Harbor, Maine.
