Abstract

"The Talk of Maine" piece on the July vote by Scarborough residents against a Great American Neighborhood proposal that would have created a compact, mixed-use, traditional neighborhood, while potentially protecting hundreds of acres of local land from development. John and Elliott Chamberlain proposed the development of Dunstan Crossing, with 397 housing units and 50,000 square feet of shops, offices and restaurants. The Scarborough vote was a discouraging sign for other developers thinking about proposing anti-sprawl, "smart growth" projects elsewhere in the state. With comments by John Chamberlain, Scarborough residents Mary Angis and Lorraine Carrera, and Evan Richert, former director of the State Planning Office.
