Abstract

With improved highway and rail service into Maine, the influence of Boston, carried by the growing stream of commuters to and from York, will spread farther north. The average York resident is richer and older than the average Maine resident. York's commuter culture could affect towns from Wells to Brunswick, aided by passenger rail service from Portland to Boston. The town's total valuation is the second-highest in the state, and many who work in York can't afford to live there. With details on how the town has changed, the controversy over a growth cap ordinance, residents' rejection of the new library's operating budget, and the effort to preserve land between Mount Agamenticus and the ocean.
