Route One Study
The Planning Department kicked off a Route One Corridor Study last month. The purpose of this study is to make the Route 1 corridor from Downtown Saco to Pleasant Hill Road in Scarborough safe and accessible for all travel modes, including motor vehicles, transit users, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Making the corridor more accessible will stimulate economic development, reduce vehicle delay, and improve safety for all users.
A meeting summary and a quick survey are available on the Town’s Website — Click here to link to study page.

SEDCO will be exhibiting at the Maine Real Estate and Development Association’s annual conference next week on January 17th. Each January, over 900 of the state’s real estate experts attend MEREDA’s Annual Forecast Conference & Member Showcase. The conference brings together the largest gathering of commercial real estate professionals in Maine, and is specifically geared toward developers, brokers, architects, bankers, attorneys, accountants, and other industry professionals. Each year, MEREDA assembles some of Maine’s top real estate leaders to provide an economic overview and outlook on the profession’s key economic indicators, along with the popular market overview by property type, focusing on both commercial and residential real estate forecasts.
