GrowSmart Maine finds common ground solutions for growing Maine’s economy and preserving our quality of place. In 2006, GrowSmart Maine brought The Brookings Institution here to develop Charting Maine’s Future, a report that created a vision for Maine and an Action Plan to achieve that vision. Now, in 2012, GrowSmart Maine is assessing the impact of Charting Maine’s Future and updating the Action Plan.

We partnered with Peter Weed and Teague Morris for this project.
