Transportation: Expanding Alternatives for the 21st Century

Striking a Balance organizers announce that our fifteenth forum has been scheduled to take place at the VFW Hall on the Washington Junction Road from 6:00 until 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 28. Participants are encouraged register by Friday, May 22. A registration fee of $17.00 will include a light meal and materials. Please note that doors will open at 5:00 for registrations; the program will begin at promptly 6:00 p.m.

Striking a Balance was developed to address issues related to growth and development in Hancock County. Striking a Balance has been very well received in Hancock County, often attracting more than 100 participants consisting of municipal officials, real estate agents, code enforcement officers, developers, students and members of the community at large. Partners in this ambitious effort include the Hancock County Planning Commission and the Down East Resource, Conservation and Development Council.
