Maine: COMMUNITIES BANKING ON IMPROVED RIVER FRONTS.

28 Mar

Many river side communities in Maine are banking on improved river fronts;  through, walking trails, bicycle trails, canoeing and other recreational activities to aid in their viability, produce commerce to increase their growth and needed tax revenue.

Chattanooga, Tennessee; San Antonio, Texas; Burlington, Vermont have seen vast improvement in economic development due to a sustainable community involvement .

There was a time when Lewiston, Maine and Auburn, Maine realized the way forward was the Androscoggin River and the major component for this action was the combining of the needs of the two communities.

This was accomplished in 1852 be the realization of the conquering of the Androscoggin River Front (Bates Mill and Canals) to benefit the two communities through water power for the new mills and generation of power to the needed production of jobs.

As, you can imagine; the Androscoggin River for a century and a half (150 years.) greatly fulfilled it task for the betterment of the local areas communities from Lewiston, Maine, Lisbon, Maine to Brunswick, Maine for that generation and beyond for a century and a half.

But today, we must think; of what benefits shall the Androscoggin River serve for the betterment of today’s and tomorrow’s citizen’s.

Therefore, I will promulgate this suggestions:

  1.  That, the five (5) electric generation plants now located on or about the Bates Mill Canal (1.5 miles of canals.) on or about Canal  Street, Lewiston, Maine be brought forward in a revitalization of the Androscoggin River to a point of  regeneration of electrical power to accomplish the lighting of the Auburn and Lewison,  Maine’s; street lighting, municipal buildings and school building.
  2.  That, this project realize the saving to the two cities through the saving from have to pay   a foreign entity’s electrical generating company which is in occurrence this day.
  3.  This would yield a saving of on electricity for the communities involved and would aid       in the paying of the Bond debit.

Thus, this would create much needed jobs; construction at first and then reaching out to serve a higher purpose for the revitalization of and reclaiming of the river water front properties alone the mighty waterway of the Androscoggin River.

Note:

The last time, I checked; the city of Lewiston, Maine was paying the electric company better than four (4) hundred thousand dollars a year and rising.

By, reclaiming Androscoggin River water front properties; I mean, the ability to place housing along non flood zones of the Androscoggin River.  (Private homes, Recreational Business usage, scenic views, )
