One of the great assets of living in Wiscasset is how handy our downtown businesses are. On a wet fall day or an icy winter one, I can pull my car right up in front of Treats to grab a bite and a hot cup of tea. Just a few steps down the sidewalk and across Main Street are many other inviting, one-of-a-kind shops.

Storefront parking makes stopping by these local businesses easy, both for those of us who live here and for visitors passing through. MaineDOT’s plan to eliminate parking along Main Street would decrease access and jeopardize the well-being of our village center.

Wiscasset residents, let’s not allow this to happen! Please join me in voting YES on April 17 to support the lawsuit challenging this damaging project.
