If you've been around Southern Maine for a few years, you've probably seen the transformation happening in downtown Biddeford. We had a chance to talk with Delilah Poupore about how Heart of Biddeford has been helping in revitalizing the city, how her experiences in different parts of the country have prepared her for her current role, what's coming up, and much more!
ABOUT OUR GUEST:
Delilah has been the Executive Director of Heart of Biddeford since January of 2011 -- engaging the community in an effort to foster a vibrant, inclusive and sustainable downtown. Delilah grew up in the post-industrial city of Duluth Minnesota, attended college and grad school in Vermont, and worked in higher education primarily in Southern California for 16 years before moving to Maine with her husband. Heart of Biddeford recently received the Great American Main Street Award, which is Main Street America's highest award for historic preservation, community engagement, and inclusive development.
