BANGOR, MAINE – The City of Bangor is pleased to announce that Anne Krieg will assume the position of Director of Development. Krieg joined the City in May of 2019 as a Planner and become our Planning Officer later that same year.

As Director of Development, Krieg will lead the support, development, retention and implementation of business and economic growth within the City.

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.
Since joining the City, Anne has made significant contributions to our community. Her more public efforts have included zoning and land use planning, implementing Affordable Housing Work Group recommendations, leading our comprehensive plan update, as well as spearheading our Livable Communities and Climate Action Plan initiatives. Behind the scenes, she has cultivated significant relationships to garner and advance public feedback, researched options for redevelopment of the Bangor Mall area, been an active participant in our efforts to streamline the development process, supported the data development and discussions on short-term rentals, and enhanced our ability to communicate information in a more accessible manner. We look forward to her continued commitment and efforts in furthering Bangor’s interests.
