WESTBROOK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Westbrook is the lastest Southern Maine community to announce a proposal for an outdoor concert venue, following the success of the Waterfront Concerts in Bangor.
According to Assistant City Administrator William Baker, a 2,500-seat pavilion would be built in the Riverbank Park along the Presumpscot River downtown.
Baker said the most likely source of funding for the project would come from revenue sharing with an unnamed concert promoter.
He said the location is ideal because of its accessibility.
"We do think it would be good to have these national acts here in a venue that is very easy to get in and out of here in the City of Westbrook," said Baker.
He said the city has done a study with the University of Southern Maine, and is in talks with a concert promoter.
"I think it's very realistic and viable," he said.
