Abstract

United States Postal Service officials have proposed a 340,000-square-foot building and a 290,000-square-foot parking lot for an 80-acre parcel near the Fore River Sanctuary in Portland. The Portland City Council this month voted to conduct an emergency study of ways the city could take control of the land and hold it in trust until a more suitable use is found. City attorney Gary Woods said he was unsure whether the city could block the development. City Councilor Tom Kane said he wanted the city to start a land bank.
