Natural Resources And Roads
- Excerpt:"A principal cause for the decline in the forest products industry in DownEast Maine is an antiquated road system making the moving products to market not easily done here."
Infrastructure And Economic Recovery
- Excerpt:"Those students who grew up in Washington County and who have completed technical degrees in science and engineering lack opportunities to return here to apply their technical knowledge. The environment—transportation, communication and accommodation—is not friendly or focused to support these activities."
The Decline Of Physical And Social Connectivity As The Cause Of Fifty Years Of Poverty And The East-West Highway
- Excerpt:"Whenever state government turns its back on building infrastructure (roads, railways, airports and marine terminals) in rural areas, those populations become even more disconnected and rural."
- Excerpt:"Current infrastructure maintains sustained personal and community isolation within the region, in the rest of Maine and with our neighbors in New Brunswick."
- Excerpt:"Tourists contribute to the seasonal economy. Tourists mean jobs and employment."
