"Feature Story" piece on the U.S. Postal Service's intent to build a new mail processing plant in southern Maine to replace the current plant located in Portland. Postal officials have created a heated controversy revolving around their options: two potential sites in Scarborough and one in the Lewiston-Auburn area. But they have totally overlooked a fourth option: stay put and expand the exisiting facilities in Portland's Bayside area. With special focus on two things that have changed since the process began: Amtrak will soon be appearing daily at the virtual doorstep of the existing facility, and the city itself has shown a willingness to use its eminent domain powers for economic development and to grant a substantial property tax break to Idexx, if they will build a new 250,000-square-foot headquarters in Bayside.
