BANGOR — The University of Maine System is considering selling its headquarters offices in Bangor.

A committee voted Monday to advance the proposal to the full Board of Trustees, which meets later this month. If it’s approved, then system offices would be relocated primarily to campuses in Orono, Bangor and Augusta.

Some system employees already have moved. But more than 100 individuals remain at the Bangor offices. Trustees will consider selling properties in Portland, Old Town and Machias, as well.

Dan Demeritt, spokesman for the system, says the goal is to complete the move from Central Street in Bangor within the calendar year and by no later than 2016.
