Pike Organizes Bus Tours

Slipped into today's American Journal is a flyer funded by Citizens for Balanced Growth in Westbrook, the public lobbying group advocating Pike's position in the (newly-minted by yours truly) "Donnybrook in the 'Brook."

Promising a "complimentary box meal," the supplement advertises three bus tours that'll enable the concerned citizen to "[s]ee for [themselves] how Pike is providing rock-steady employment in Westbrook and other Southern-Maine communities."

Dubbed the 2009 Rock 'N Road Tour, the rides have been scheduled for tomorrow and Saturday from 10a-1p, as well as next Wednesday from 5-8p. You must call (207) 221-1076 or go to to reserve a seat.

This is a great idea! I hope Pike will take us to see their Wells location. Pike has over 602 acres in Wells and the quarry is located in an undeveloped part of town.

The Wells quarry is a shining example of a well located extractive industry. Plenty of additional land for buffering (10x more land than is available on Spring Street) and there is no neighboring business park.

I wouldn't mind a bus ride to Wells tomorrow morning.
