Where Communities Work Together for The Future of the Blue Hill Peninsula
Peninusula Tomorrow is a multi-town effort to identify our strengths, our concerns and ways that communities can work together for a better future. This initiative began on March 25th, 2002 with a kick-off meeting at the Halcyon Grange Hall. The process is dedicated to crafting a vision for the future and identifying ways to reach our goals.
The towns of the Blue Hill peninsula have, with the exception of Brooklin, experienced more than 20% population growth in the past ten years. Future projections indicate continued population growth, along with an aging population and uncertain economic opportunities. Growth brings with it a multitude of challenges for our towns, some of which might benefit from multi-town efforts.
Peninsula Tomorrow, a process that allows residents of the Blue Hill Peninsula to identify issues of concern, and develop some consensus views about a "preferred future" for the area, held an exploratory meeting with 30 community representatives from the six peninsula towns of Blue Hill, Brooklin, Brooksville, Penobscot, Sedgwick, and Surry.
The group identified six areas of discussion:
