Re: Westbrook, ME

Some news about the potential re-development of the Maine Rubber site:

http://www.pressherald.com/news/West...ber-plant.html

I'm not pleased with this part:

"In exchange, the city would give to the Elowitches the portion of Saco Street that connects William Clarke Drive and Main Street in front of their property. The city would also make drive-through banks permitted on the property. They are considered a special exception in its current zone."

So the City of Westbrook spends all this time and effort on the Downtown Revitalization and Streetscape plans, then they spit in the face of those by allowing a drive-though bank, especially in a high-profile "gateway" location like this.
