Abstract

Portland's population has dropped by 17 percent since 1950, while the population of its suburbs has grown 40 percent. The city is currently undertaking three projects--the renovation of City Hall Auditorium and Hadlock and the construction of a passenger railroad station--that will benefit the suburbs as much as Portland, and some people believe residents of the suburbs should contribute their fair share. John C. Roberts, a vice president at UNUM, is one of a growing number of people who believe the suburbs should consolidate taxes and services with Portland to form a regional government. Details.
