ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) - The Northern Border Regional Commission is providing $650,000 to a pair of Maine communities to help improve local infrastructure.

Democratic Rep. Chellie Pingree says Winslow and Rockland will get the money, which she says will support and create jobs in the state.

Pingree says Rockland’s aging fish pier will get an upgrade. The pier is critical to Rockland’s working waterfront area. The work will help the waterfront better accommodate fishing and allow a boat pier to serve growing cruise ship activity in the area.

Funds will also help the Winslow Business Park expand, creating new jobs. Two companies in the business park are already looking to grow and add 110 new jobs.
