Somerset Economic Development Council prioritizes East-West Highway in plan

In its plan prepared by Eaton-Peabody consulting group, the Somerset Economic Development Council lists, “pursue East-West Highway” as one of its 14 regional priorities.

Stop the East-West Corridor and Defending Water for Life are calling on Somerset County residents to write letters in local papers, as well as step forward to inform the SEDC about the facts available about the Corridor, and share their opinions.

SEDC, along with all of the federally designated economic development zones in Maine, has been infiltrated by a for-profit group called “Mobilize Maine” that seeks to use federal grants to privatize economic planning and development, and provides incentives of regional economic planning influence to investors.  To learn more, search our other articles on Mobilize Maine or visit,
