New Location Creates Regional Possibilities
The former International Paper (IP) bag mill in Rumford is alive with possibilities. Home to the River Valley Technology Center, the former IP mill is being heralded by regional economic developers and community leaders as a “what’s next” location. Renovations are now underway for a relocation of the University College (UC) Center at Rumford/Mexico to the mill, with an August 1 opening anticipated. Stakeholders share their hopes for the future and potential created by the move. The Center will offer access to over 100 degree and certificate programs from across the University of Maine System.
