"Focus: Augusta-Waterville" piece reporting that many city officials and develop
"Focus: Augusta-Waterville" piece reporting that many city officials and developers believe that Augusta is on the verge of a residential housing boom. Shifting demographics and market forces may combine to reverse what has been a steady exodus of Augusta's residents to surrounding towns. As its population was declining, Augusta was becoming a regional shopping hub of malls and big-box stores. To capture middle and upper strata residents, the city must capitalize on the upcoming deluge of baby boomer retirees. With comments by Roger Katz, mayor; William Bridgeo, city manager; Mark Lapping, a professor of public policy and community development at the Muskie School of Public Service; and Frank O'Hara of Planning Decisions Inc., who authored a recent housing report for the city.
