Abstract

Article on the two-pronged influx of people moving into Maine from other states. On one front, York County is becoming partly a bedroom community to the burgeoning technological economy of eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, although the number of immigrants is still relatively small. According to many realtors, out-of-staters move to Maine for its quality of life, and they continue to favor waterfront property and access to telecommunications, which is especially important to those who telecommute. And in York and Cumberland counties, the first sizeable wave of retired people have appeared, buying both seasonal and full-time homes. The Census Bureau predicts that Maine's 65-and-older residents will go from 14 to 21 percent of the population between 2000 and 2025.
