Hannah LaClaire recently covered Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust’s work to create a community hub on Brunswick Landing.
A former Navy night club, “Night Flight,” now a gutted building at Brunswick Landing bordering a swath of conservation lands, may soon be revived as an environmental resource center.
The center “can become one of the greatest treasures of the Midcoast Maine area,” developer Thomas Wright wrote to the town council, and is another step toward meeting the goals for Brunswick Landing outlined in the reuse plan for the former base. He’s working with the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust to plan the project.
The 16,000-square-foot building at 179 Neptune Dr. has two parking lots, making it an ideal entryway to the neighboring conservation lands, Wright said in an interview.
“Surrounded by literally hundreds of acres that have been set aside for conservation and recreational uses, this building … is exceedingly well situated to provide a community hub for recreation and environmental engagement,” Nikkilee Cataldo, director of programs for the land trust, wrote in a letter to the council, adding that the building would serve as a base for conservation, recreation and environmental education community groups.
