"From the Ground Up" piece comparing the redevelopment of the Maine State Pier i
"From the Ground Up" piece comparing the redevelopment of the Maine State Pier in Portland to the redevelopment of the Saco Island mill complex in Saco. While Portland officials are still entrenched in a stalemate over which pier developer to choose - Ocean Properties or The Olympia Companies - Saco officials jumped at the rare chance to inject $100 million into the community. Saco worked closely with Harper's Development to refine details of the Island Point project. Issues addressed in Saco included environmental remediation of the mill site, changes to zoning and a tax increment financing (TIF) plan.
