"City" piece on a plan that Portland International Jetport officials have to buy
"City" piece on a plan that Portland International Jetport officials have to buy over 15 acres of Smiling Hill Farm in Westbrook for $200,000 to meet environmental regulations that require the Jetport to compensate for wetlands that might be destroyed in a planned runway reconstruction project. But Portland city manager Bob Ganley wants the Jetport to buy the Snyder-Barris property located off Rand Road in Portland. City officials have been concerned about saving the 51-acre expanse of open land, appraised at $1,420,000, since the U.S. Postal Service dropped the parcel as the site for a new distribution center. But a report by Jetport consultants Coffman Associates indicates the Snyder property doesn't meet state Department of Environmental Protection guidelines for replacing wetlands, and the Westbrook property does.
