Bangor's planning board gave approval to a local church's plan to expand.
Bangor Baptist Church on outer Broadway wants to build a new youth center.
The 8,000 square foot building would go directly behind the church in a space now used as a parking lot.
We're told the plans have been in the works for at least 6 years.
Now that the youth center has approval from the planning board, church members must apply for a building permit.
