Portland

Portland is the largest city in Maine, located in Cumberland County, and is home to over 66,000 residents. The city seal depicts a phoenix rising from ashes, which aligns with the city’s motto, Resurgam, Latin for “I will rise again,” a reference to Portland’s recoveries from four devastating fires.  The city of Portland is made up of many distinct smaller neighborhoods, and each has their own identity. Portland is known for its working waterfront as well as the Portland Farmers' Market, which has been in continuous operation since 1768. CPPC is currently most active in the Peninsula and Riverton areas of the city.
