The Maine Seacoast Mission is planning to move its administrative offices out of the Colket Center on West Street in Bar Harbor and sell the building and property.

In a letter mailed to Mission supporters and donors on July 17th, President Scott Planting said

"It is with mixed feelings that I tell you that the Mission plans to move its administrative headquarters out of its beloved Colket Center in Bar Harbor which was donated in 1972. Its value having appreciated significantly over the years, we will transform this remarkable asset into valuable support for the Mission's programs and services."

In a press release on its website, the Maine Seacoast Mission stated "By taking thoughtful and bold actions, such as transforming property into financial resources for programs and services for the future, the Maine Seacoast Mission is building on over a century of service to Maine communities."
