portland: Maine State Pier Development May Move Forward - 12/16/08 10:33 PM
On Monday the Portland City Council held a workshop to discuss the future development of the Maine State Pier.  The result was an informal decision to re-open negotiations with Portsmouth-based Ocean Properties.
Three options were presented by the city manager's office for moving forward with the redevelopment of the pier and in the end they chose to move ahead with Ocean Properties, who last year lost the bid for the development project to local competitor The Olympia Cos. The city council scheduled a formal vote on the matter next month. At this time there is still no final decision on whether … (0 comments)

portland: Relocating to Maine - 05/04/07 12:05 AM
Welcome Back To Maine!
