Abstract

The towns of Gardiner and Hallowell have chosen different paths towards economic development. Gardiner received $3.7 million in economic development grants since 2011 and focused on developing its food and beverage business, as well as developing medical services for its population. Hallowell has focused on preserving the historical aspects of the town. Both towns are interested in linking with each other through road and rail trails which can encourage tourism. Page fifteen illustrates a compilation of facts that compare Augusta and Waterville. [images]
